Arsenal must wait before they can tie up any Loic Remy deal

Queens Park Rangers have indicated that the long term futures of their star players will not be decided until after the World Cup has finished this summer, reports talkSPORT. Loic Remy and Julio Cesar are two high-profile players who look likely to leave Loftus Road within the transfer window.

Remy is a target for Arsenal, as the Gunners look to provide Olivier Giroud with a striking partner for next season. The Frenchman has become a fans favourite at the Emirates Stadium, but Giroud would benefit from the signing of a quality attacking player such as his compatriot Remy, as the goal scoring pressure will then be shared across two men.

Julio Cesar finds himself in the curious position of being the first choice for Brazil in the World Cup which they are currently hosting, but second choice within the QPR set-up – England’s Rob Green is the current number one. After spending much of last season on loan at Toronto FC, it is probable that the shot-stopper will move on as well, this summer.

The QPR chief executive, Philip Beard, has reportedly met with Harry Redknapp, the Hoops’ manager, to discuss the situations of both players, and it was agreed that further meetings shall be arranged for after the World Cup.

A sale of either Remy or Cesar could help QPR as they look to recruit ahead of their first season back in the Premier League. From an Arsenal perspective, however, Remy is a transfer target who does not look likely to become a Gunner for at least a few more weeks.
