Arsene Wenger and the board seem to be on different wavelengths over transfer targets this summer, with the Frenchman wanting to sign Loic Remy while the head officials at the club believe they should make a move for Wilfried Bony.
Remy, 26, has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks, with Wenger believed to be a keen admirer of the striker.
And following relegation with QPR, Remy looks almost certain to leave the London club for a bargain price.
However, members of the Arsenal board would rather splash the cash on Ivory Coast international Bony.
Bony, who plays for Vitesse Arnhem, is said to have impressed The Gunners hierarchy with his fine form in front of goal this season for the Eredivisie club, scoring 35 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions, and is currently the top scorer in Holland.
Only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have more goals in a major European League than Bony.
However, Wenger remains keen on Remy despite his top striker target being Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic, who would welcome a move to Arsenal this summer. Remy was on Wenger’s radar in January and considered a move for his fellow countryman but decided against it due to his fitness concerns.
But since arriving at QPR, Remy has notched up five goals in 11 starts and Wenger is now ready to make his move at the end of the season.
But which striker would add more value to our side – Remy or Bony?
Well Remy would cost us less, something in the region of £6 million, as he has a clause in his current deal at QPR. However, Bony, whose contract expires in 2015, has been in far superior form than the Frenchman.
If reports are to be believed, Remy seems keen on a move to Arsenal, while Bony wants to switch Holland for England in the summer.
Personally, either one would be a great signing for the club. But due to his Premier League experience and value, Remy looks the obvious choice. But we could well miss out on both their signatures if the club don’t get their act together.
