Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he is a fan of QPR striker Loic Remy - but insists he’s not yet thinking about transfers.

The France international has impressed on loan at Newcastle this season, scoring 13 goals in 24 league appearances for Alan Pardew’s side, who visit the Emirates Stadium on Monday evening.

Arsenal are expected to bolster their attacking options in the summer to ease the workload on Olivier Giroud, and Remy is among a number of names to have been linked with the north London outfit.

Remy is expected to leave QPR this summer and has previously spoken of his desire to join one of Europe’s leading clubs.

Wenger has prasied the 27-year-old, but the Gunners boss insists transfer plans are on the back burner as Arsenal concentrate on finishing the season strongly.

“He is a good striker,” Wenger said. “But at the moment we are focused on the end of the season, not on transfers.”
