Alan Pardew Confirms Remy Interest
While Alan Pardew has ruled out a move for one of Vurnon Anita’s former colleagues, twenty year old winger Jody Lukoki, he has confirmed that Newcastle are interested in signing Marseille’s striker, Loic Remy.
When the question was put to him he said;
“That’s a situation we are looking at”.
Remy has been largely out of favour this season but in the previous two seasons scored 37 goals in 83 club appearances.
Remy was in the provisional French squad for the Euros earlier this year but failed to make the final cut of 23.
As well playing as a main striker, Remy can also operate as the second striker or on the wing, so in theory at least he ticks a lot of boxes as the kind of versatile striker that we haven’t got.
Whatever transfer activity does happen at Newcastle in January, I just hope that it is concluded quickly as once we’ve got Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton out of the way after Christmas, the matches in January are against teams nearer the other end of the table and nearer us!
We have to pick up decent points against Norwich, Reading and Villa or else the writing could be on the wall.
