The Express have reported that Arsenal could sign France international Loic Remy for as little as £4 million, should Queens Park Rangers be relegated from the Premier League.
Rangers sit bottom of the table, seven points from safety with just eight games to go and the 26 year old, who is thought to be on around £75,000 per week is thought to have an escape clause in his contract should they drop to the Championship.
Remy, who was signed from Marseille in January, has scored three goals in six appearances for Harry Redknapp’s side.
Meanwhile, the same paper report that the Gunners will battle with a number of Premier League clubs for the signature of Manchester City’s hotly rated midfielder Abdisalam Ibrhaim.
The 21 year old is being monitored by club scouts in Norway, where he is currently on loan with Tippeligaen side Stromsgodset.
West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City are also said to be interested in the player, whose current deal expires in 2014.
