Arsenal eye Nice guy Remy

Topics

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly interested in bringing highly-rated Nice striker Loic Remy – dubbed the ‘new Thierry Henry’ – to the Emirates Stadium.

The former Lyon striker is one of the hottest properties in French football and has also been linked with moves to AC Milan, Bordeaux and his former employers at the Stade Gerland.

Remy has netted six times in 12 appearances so far this campaign and admits he has discussed the possibility of moving to North London.

“I often talk about Arsenal with [Abou] Diaby and [Bacary] Sagna when I am with them in the French team,” he said in The Sun.

“They tell me that when you are at Arsenal you want to stay there for your entire career.”

Reports suggest the Gunners boss is an admirer of Remy, who bares resemblance to the former Arsenal favourite and is currently valued at £14 million.

The 22-year-old, however, has stated his intentions to remain at Nice until the end of the season as he looks ahead to making a big impression in South Africa next summer.

“In terms of leaving Nice, I got my first international cap with this club and I see no reason to go to the World Cup as anything but a Nice player," he said.
