Arsenal will reportedly swoop to trigger a £6m release clause to sign striker Loic Remy that will come into operation if QPR fail to avoid the drop according to the Sunday People.

The 26 year old French international has long been linked with interest from the Emirates Stadium club but ended up leaving Marseille for Loftus Road in January in an £8m move that doesn’t appear to look likely to help prevent Harry Redknapp’s side from suffering relegation to the Champioship.

Remy left the Stade Velodrome after he was deemed surplus to requirements by new Marseille boss Elie Baup, this despite the fact that the former Nice man had been the club’s top scorer for the previous two seasons.

Redknapp can have no complaints about the contribution Remy has made since arriving at QPR, having netted four goals in seven appearances for the West London club.

Arsene Wenger is apparently keen to strengthen his attack and has set his sights on Montenegro international Stevan Jovetic, who may well cost the Gunners a club record fee.

Remy may therefore be considered as a cut-price alternative, as one would imagine that the chances of luring the Fiorentina forward may be dented should Arsenal not secure a Champions League berth.
