Arsenal transfers: Wenger plays down Loic Remy’s trip to The Emirates
Arsenal transfers: Arsene Wenger plays down the significance of Loïc Remy's trip to The Emirates on Sunday
Arsene Wenger has rejected the suggestion that Loic Remy’s attendance at Arsenal’s final home game of the season was due to the Gunners’ reported interest in signing the French striker.
The 27-year-old, who is currently on loan at Newcastle United from QPR, has been linked with a move to Arsenal and was spotted in the stands at The Emirates during Sunday’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.
I have just been informed that Loic Remy was here, I didn’t know
But Wenger insists he did not know that the forward was in attendance and played down the significance of his visit.
“Honestly, I have just been informed that Loic Remy was here, I didn’t know,” said Wenger.
“So don’t see any sign of us signing Loic Remy in that.
“I hope he has paid for his ticket! No [I didn’t invite him], that’s why I tell you I have not invited him.”
Remy has scored 14 goals and made three assists in 26 Premier League games during his loan spell at Newcastle United this season.
