Arsenal Considers Bids for QPR Duo

Reports continue to swirl that Arsenal’s Manager Arsene Wenger is very keen in raiding relegation-threatened Queen's Park Rangers with an £18million dual pounce for defender Frank Samba and striker Loic Remy, should QPR face relegation in the last weeks of the Premiership.

The boys at Loftus Road are currently propping up the table.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has a huge task at hand in ensuring that the team holds on in the League.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are eager to enhance both their fighting options and their defense in their attempt to end a trophy-less drought now totalling eight years.

Remy has been in an amazing form since signing at QPR, having garnered three goals in six league appearances, while Samba has been key in his side's  victories against Sunderland and Southampton.

Samba had previously indicated his desire to be a part of the north London side when he was with Blackburn Rovers earlier this year before he signed at that time for European moneybags Anzhi.

Remy would be a great signing for the Gunners, given that he will contest with his compatriot Olivier Giroud for a starting berth upfront, while Samba’s speed and experience could go a long way in steadying the wavering ship that is the Gunners' defense.

The only daunting issue continues to be the players’ income, with Samba on £100,000 per week and Remy on £75,000 per week, which are currently outside Arsenal’s conservative salary framework.
