Cape Town - Arsene Wenger is looking to secure the services of QPR-owned Loic Remy for £8m in order to strengthen Arsenal’s attack.

While we all thought Wenger was on a beach in Brazil, he's actually been working behind the scenes as deals for Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy are reported to be announced within the next 48 hours.

Following QPR’s inclusion in the English Premiership this upcoming season, their big spending spree continued throughout the January 2013 transfer window, during which they captured the former Marseille striker for £10m.

QPR were then relegated at the end of the season and then needed to balance their books when Remy was loaned out to Newcastle United for the 2013/14 season. He made 26 appearances for the Magpies and netted 14 times - which sparked interest from Wenger.

The France international was spotted last season watching Arsenal beat West Brom at The Emirates which increased the transfer rumour.

Remy is a youth product of Lyon and had three stints in France with Lens, Nice and Marseille before QPR lured him to the English Premiership.

It is said that personal terms have not yet been agreed between the player and Arsenal, but a deal between the newly promoted QPR and the Gunners is set to be confirmed soon.
