Chelsea To Make Shock Move For 14 Goal Liverpool Target – Reports

Chelsea have made a shock enquiry as to the availability of Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy, who Liverpool came close to signing earlier this summer, as reported by

Didier Drogba suffered an injury during the Stamford Bridge club’s 2-1 friendly win against Ferencvaros, and Chelsea are interested in Remy as an option in the face of Drogba’s ankle knock.

The Blues are unsure as to how long Drogba will be out as a result of the injury, and with Fernando Torres failing to impress during pre-season, boss Jose Mourinho is now looking for new back-up options.

Remy has already been at the centre of one transfer move this summer, with Liverpool coming very close to signing the French international for £8 million. The move broke down after Remy failed a medical in Boston for the Merseyside club.

Drogba looks like he might miss the start of the season, and Remy is clearly being considered a viable alternative by the London club. He has an £8 million release clause written into his contract which allows him to move to any top four Premier League side if they match that value.

  1. I would rather we sign someone like Bony rater than Remy. If like the Scousers say that Remy failed his physical (although it might be more like his personal history) then why would Chelsea sign him. But we do really need another striker badly. Costa is bound to be injured or suspended as we have seen hot other teams target him to either injure or make him lose his temper. Then we will be left with a misfiring Torres, an injured supersub and Schurrle who we dont use as a striker and only keep him wide for some reason.
    We NEED another striker. Just clone Costa that would be fine.

  2. Believe it or not a formidable, sharp, skilful, enterprising and experience striker is a neccessity in chelsea. I’m not satisfied with the present forwards is not enough. Study the forwards of the likes in real madrid, barcelona fcs. These clubs want to play game and win trophies. Reliance on diego costa may cause them great regrates in the persons like drogba and fernando torres. They made that costly mistake last season in samuel etoo.
