The Chelsea forward could be set to leave Stamford Bridge next month
Loic Remy could be leaving Chelsea in January.
The Frenchman is reportedly one of Aston Villa’s main targets, with the Villains on the lookout for the firepower needed to help them avoid relegation.
He is also a target for both Southampton and Swansea, as they too look to bolster their strikeforces.
However, it is Remi Garde’s side who are leading the race for the forward and a deal could be agreed as soon as the winter transfer window opens its doors. A deal would not be on a permanent basis – it would be a loan deal until the end of the season.
Hiddink could convince him to stay
It had looked likely that the 28-year old would be leaving the Blues, especially under Jose Mourinho, as he struggled to find much gametime.
However, with the sacking of the Special One and with Guus Hiddink now in temporary charge, Remy could be tempted to stay at Chelsea rather than leave on loan to see if he can get more first-team action at Stamford Bridge with the change of manager.
