German champions prepared to pay £15m for Newcastle United loanee.
Bayern Munich are hopeful of beating a host of Premier League clubs to the signature of Queens Park Rangers forward Loic Remy, according to The Mirror.
Remy has spent this season on loan at Newcastle United, for whom he has netted 13 goals in 25 top-flight appearances, but his one-year deal at St James’ Park is soon to expire.
The 27-year-old still has over three years remaining on his QPR contract, but he is expected to leave Loftus Road this summer, even if the Hoops win promotion via the Championship playoffs.
Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have all been credited with interest in Remy, but The Mirror claims that Bayern have jumped to the front of the queue.
The paper says that Bayern are willing to part with £15m in order to land Remy, who cost QPR £8m when he arrived from Marseille in January 2013.
Bayern have already agreed to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski, but Mario Mandzukic could be sold in order to free up space for new arrivals at the Allianz Arena.
Lewandowski and Mandzukic have each scored 18 goals in the Bundesliga this season.
Bayern clinched the Bundesliga title in record-breaking time last month, but their form has since dipped dramatically. Including Tuesday night’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Real Madrid, Bayern have lost four of their last eight matches, which is more defeats than they suffered in their first 44 games of the season.
