Chelsea

Forgotten striker will be allowed to leave

Loic Remy feels the pressure of performance and the threat of youth when it comes to his Chelsea career. The French striker has had a troubled few seasons at Stamford Bridge only playing 35 times since signing from west London rivals, Queens Park Rangers in 2014.

His transfer value reached heights of £16.5 million during his time at Olympique Lyon in 2012 but now has more than halved to £7.65 million.

There is interest for the former French international nonetheless with the 30-year-old having ruffled feathers with 5th place Ligue 1 finishers Marseille and north-west side Everton.

Media outlets report that Remy is expected to fly with the Chelsea squad to the Far East but will be allowed to leave if Aubameyang or Belotti is signed in the coming weeks. Despite his desire to play Premier League football, the former Newcastle United man may find home comforts playing for Marseille, the team where his career skyrocketed.

As Marseille hope to resurrect their UCL Champions League chances next season, Remy still has a lot to offer.

Despite his age, he still has explosive speed off the line and is a certain counter-attack threat; he likes to have a go from long range and has scored some screamers for Chelsea and other Premier League clubs.

Everton seems like an outsider shout as a jerk reaction to losing Lukaku to Manchester United last week. This transfer could materialise and would satisfy Remy’s desire to play constant first team football. Some say his constant injuries stem from poor management and lack of playing time so he is often strained when called up, leading to months out as a benchwarmer.

It’s not the end for the Frenchman who wants to make right what injuries did him wrong over the last few years.
