Arsenal have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Loic Remy after Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp admitted that the striker is desperate to play in the Champions League.

The 27-year-old forward has been strongly linked with a move away from Loftus Road this summer, despite the Hoops’ return to the Premier League.

I think he’s really looking to move. I would be surprised if he was at QPR at the start of the year

Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are all thought to be keen on signing the France international, who is understood to have a £12m release clause in his QPR contract.

And QPR manager Redknapp has indicated that Remy is keen to move to a club offering European football, revealing that it is unlikely he will stay at Loftus Road.

“I think he really wants to play Champions League football next year somewhere,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“We gave him time off after the World Cup but I think he’s really looking to move. I would be surprised if he was at QPR at the start of the year.

“If he goes to the right team, he’s capable of scoring 15 to 20 Premier League goals next season.”

Remy scored 14 goals in 26 Premier League appearances during a season-long loan at Newcastle United last season.
