Blues prepared to let striker leave
Chelsea will let Loic Remy leave the club, but only on one condition – if they find a suitable replacement for the striker.
The Frenchman has been strongly linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after growing tired of the lack of first-team football, and he’s been linked with a short-term loan deal away from the club.
Several Premier League sides have been linked with Remy, including Aston Villa and Newcastle United, whilst reports emerged this morning that Turkish outfit Galatasaray could also be keen on securing a loan deal for the forward.
Remy is back-up to Diego Costa at Chelsea, and he’s tired of the lack of action, resulting in him wanting to leave the club in the near-future.
According to reports, Guus Hiddink will allow the 29-year-old to leave the club this month, but only if they can sign a suitable replacement.
It’s looking likely that Alex Teixeira could be coming on from Shakhtar Donetsk, which could then see Remy leave the club on a six-month loan deal until the end of the season.
However, some reports are stating Remy could even be sold permanently this window, but only if a club agree to cough up £14million for the Frenchman.
