Queens Park Rangers' striker Loic Remy has been arrested along with two other men in London for questioning over allegations concerning the rape of a 34-year-old woman.
The incident was alleged to have happened last Monday in West London.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "Officers from Sapphire are investigating an allegation of rape which happened on 6 May in the west London area.
"The allegation was passed on to the MPS by Kent Police on 8 May after the 34-year-old female victim reported it to them on the previous day, 7 May. The victim alleges she was raped by three men. Three men, aged 26, 23 and 22, were arrested at an address in Fulham on suspicion of rape. They remain in custody at a west London police station."
Remy, who joined QPR from Olympique Marseille in January, was expected to leave the club in the summer transfer window and was reportedly being courted by a number of top clubs.
