Arsenal transfers: QPR owner hints ‘world-class’ Loïc Remy could stay
Arsenal transfers: QPR owner Tony Fernandes takes to his Instagram to hail "world-class" striker Loïc Remy
Tony Fernandes has dropped a hint that Loic Remy could be stay at Queens Park Rangers after hailing the world-class striker on Instagram.
The 27-year-old told l’Equipe that he planned to use the World Cup to earn a summer move, however the QPR man barely featured for les Bleus, playing 17 minutes of their 1-0 loss to Germany in the quarter-finals.
Remy scored 14 goals in 26 Premier League appearances during a season-long loan at Newcastle United last term, with the Magpies and Arsenal reported to be interested in the Hoops striker.
However, QPR owner Fernandes doesn’t appear to be planning to lose the striker any time soon after describing the former Marseille man as “world class” on his Instagram page on Monday afternoon.
Fernandes played a big role in convincing Remy to move to QPR in January 2013, with the QPR owner discussing a potential switch with the France striker over a game of Fifa.
Remy beat Fernandes in the computer game, but the Malaysian businessman was the real winner as he saw off competition from Newcastle for the forward’s signature.
The £8m signing went on to score six goals in 14 top-flight appearances but couldn’t prevent the west London side being relegated to the Championship.
