The north Londoners look set to sign QPR’s Remy.
QPR striker and current Newcastle United loanee Loic Remy looks set to join Tottenham Hotspur in the summer despite interest from Arsenal, reports the Daily Mail.
The Frenchman is almost certain to leave Loftus Road at the end of the season as the west London side look to reduce their inflated wage bill.
Whilst the Magpies would love to take on Remy permanently themselves, with Spurs and the Gunners closing in that is unlikely to happen.
It looked as if the Emirates Stadium was the preferred destination of the 27-year-old, as Arsene Wenger looks to reinforce what is a weak attack at the club.

However, it’s the return of Ian Broomfield as scout at White Hart Lane that could clinch the deal in their favour, with him having originally scouted Remy for the Hoops before a move in January 2013.
It’s been a good campaign for the France international at St James’ Park in 2013/14, scoring 13 Premier League goals in 23 appearances.
Remy should be available for around £7m and therefore won’t break the bank for any buying club and Spurs are looking at the forward as a replacement for the disappointing Roberto Soldado.
The Spaniard made what was then a club record £26m switch from Valencia last summer and yet has failed to adapt to English football and looks like a player devoid of confidence.
