Arsenal boss Wenger facing French battle to land Nice star Remy

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is expected to accelerate plans to sign Nice striker Loic Remy.

Despite the closure of the winter market, Remy is fast emerging as a red-hot transfer property.

The Daily Mail says Wenger's hand has been forced by news from France that long-term target Remy is subject of a £13million bid from Rennes. Lyon, too, are preparing to make their move.

A move before yesterday's transfer deadline was scuppered by an ankle injury.

Wenger reportedly tried to sign the imposing frontman on loan last week.
