Palace swoop for Chelsea striker

French newspaper L’Equipe is today reporting that Crystal Palace are preparing to swoop for Chelsea striker Loic Remy.

[sociallocker]Eagles boss Alan Pardew has long been a fan of the French striker, having worked with him during his time at Newcastle, and with Remy scoring 9 goals in only 29 appearances in a Chelsea shirt, Abramovich may be looking to offload the front man.

For Palace, Remy would surely strengthen the squad, which will be looking to build on last season.
