Arsenal’s arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur are ready to steal one of the club’s transfer targets with manager Harry Redknapp confirming interest in the player.
Marseille forward Loic Remy was one of Wenger’s targets for a long time now and it is thought he has stepped up his interest now that Arsenal will have to do without Gervinho and Chamakh for a while, but Redknapp has other plans for him.
“He is a good player.”
“We could have had him a couple of years ago, to be honest with you.
“He has pushed on. He was a player we looked at and I watched him a couple of times at that stage, but he went to Marseille.
“There is interest there. But that is as far (as it goes). At the moment, there is nothing more than that.”
Arsenal also has other attacking options and probably the most likely one is the German international striker Lukas Podolski. The fans are all hoping that the deal will go through after the German declared earlier this year that he is fond of Arsenal, and Wenger declared that attacking reinforcements are needed at the club.
