Loic Remy is desperate for Arsenal to firm up their interest in him and sign the striker this summer.

Tottenham are also chasing Remy, but the Frenchman wants to play in the Champions League and Arsenal is his preferred destination.

Remy represents an easy deal to do for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger because there is a £10million buy-out clause in his Queens Park Rangers contract.

Wenger wants to sign at least one new striker and 27-year-old Remy has proved on loan at Newcastle that he can score goals in the Premier League.

Arsenal are also looking for a holding midfielder, a deputy goalkeeper and right back but interest in Toulouse's Serge Aurier has cooled.

Cardiff’s David Marshall is Arsenal’s top goalkeeper target, but the Welsh club’s £15million valuation is far too high. Reading want £6m for Alex McCarthy, while Norwich’s John Ruddy is another option.
