Wanted man: Loric Remy is a target for Newcastle

Newcastle face late competition from Inter Milan for Marseille striker Loic Remy who looks likely to snub QPR.

Rangers boss Harry Redknapp was in France on Sunday to watch the forward in action, and hoped to tie up a deal swiftly.

Alan Pardew made his own approach in the wake of Demba Ba’s sale to Chelsea, but now Inter appear to have stolen a march on their rivals.

Newcastle are also maintaining interest in St Etienne’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Rennes striker Mevlut Erdinc, 25, who is valued at 7m.
