Home Championship AFC Bournemouth TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY PREVIEW!



Loic Remy (Chelsea)


POSSIBLE DESTINATION? Leicester City, Newcastle United

WHY? Remy is a goalscorer of proven Premier League pedigree who is on the market because of lack of opportunities since his £10.5m move to Chelsea from Queen’s Park Rangers in August 2014.

As demonstrated by their interest in Berahino, Newcastle manager Steve McClaren wants to add goal threat to his struggling side while Premier League leaders Leicester want to add quality from a position of strength.

LIKELY COST? £11.5m.

WHERE WILL HE FIT IN? At Leicester he would provide support and strength for the speed and mobility of Jamie Vardy and the creativity of Riyad Mahrez.

Remy would be the spearhead at Newcastle. He is fondly remembered on Tyneside after a successful loan spell from QPR in 2013-14, when he scored 14 goals in 27 appearances. He also has a very respectable overall Premier League record of 28 goals in 71 games.

WILL IT HAPPEN? There’s a good chance he will leave Chelsea, who are ready to accept offers after the loan signing of Alexandre Pato. The price is reasonable by current standards and he would fit the bill for any side seeking goals.
