Playful Wenger says he hopes the QPR striker paid for his ticket.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that he was unaware of Loic Remy’s attendance at the Emirates Stadium during Sunday’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.
Queens Park Rangers forward Remy, who has been heavily linked with a summer switch to the Gunners, watched the game from the stands with his family.
Wenger has previously described Remy as a “good striker” and has also admitted that he hopes to sign a forward before the start of next season.
However, speaking after his side’s victory over the Baggies, Wenger insisted that he did not invite the 27-year-old to the match.
He told Sky Sports: “Honestly, I have just been informed that Loic Remy was here, I didn’t know.
“So don’t see any sign of us signing Loic Remy in that. I hope he has paid for his ticket!
He added: “No [I didn’t invite him], that’s why I tell you I have not invited him.”
Remy has spent the season on loan at Newcastle United and has netted 14 goals in 26 Premier League games for the Magpies.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp recently hinted that Remy may have a buyout clause in his current contract at Loftus Road.
Remy joined the Hoops from Marseille for a club record transfer fee of £8m in January 2013, but he made just 14 appearances for the West London club before being loaned out following their relegation from the Premier League last year.
