Arsenal unwilling to accept Loic Remys wage demands

Remy deal in jeopardy

Arsenal have reportedly refused to accept to Queen Park Rangers striker Loic Remy's wage demands, The People reports.

The 25-year-old, who spent last season on loan with Newcastle United, is believed to be a main transfer target for manager Arsene Wenger this summer, as he plans to strengthen the club's strike front.

According to The People, the Gunners have agreed on a £10m fee with the Hoops for the France international, but the transfer could be scuppered by Remy's refusal to take a pay-cut from his current weekly wage structure of £80,000.

The Gunners have already bolstered their attacking department for the next season, by signing Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona earlier this month.
