Arsenal have not yet met Loic Remy’s release clause at Queens Park Rangers, but are ready to sign the striker if one of their own attacking players leaves, according to trusted BBC journalist David Ornstein.

The French international has been linked with a number of top clubs this summer after his fine recent displays in the Premier League for both QPR and on loan with Newcastle United last season.

Chelsea are understood to have already met the 27-year-old’s buy-out clause, but Arsenal are still hoping to hijack a deal if they can offload one of their own forwards, with Joel Campbell looking the likeliest candidate.

The Costa Rica youngster has struggled for regular first-team action for the Gunners this season after spending the last three years out on loan, and is now wanted by Portuguese giants Benfica.

Lukas Podolski has also been linked with Juventus recently and may be another option to make way as Arsenal continue to pursue Remy, though time may be running out for them to prevent him joining Chelsea.
