Arsenal are plotting the £12m signing of QPR striker Loic Remy, according to reports.

The Frenchman has been in sensational form on loan at Newcastle this season and was singled out for praise from Gunners boss Arsene Wenger this week.

The compliments could be the pre-cursor to an offer for the hotshot, according to Caught Offside.

Wenger has been linked with attempts to sign the 26-year-old in the past. He could now step up those efforts as he seeks to bolster his attack.

Arsenal need a goalscorer to share Olivier Giroud’s workload, and Remy already has 10 goals in his 16 games this season. Coupled with his six strikes in 14 appearances for a struggling QPR team last season, he has proven that he is a capable Premier League goalscorer.

The reports suggest that a deal could already be in place that will see Remy move to the Emirates next summer once his loan spell on Tyneside has finished.
