Loic Remy: Chelsea confident they have beaten Arsenal to the signature of QPR striker
Chelsea look to have secured the signing of French striker Loic Remy after activating his release clause of £10.5m
Remy has given his word to Chelsea that he will be coming to them and that is unlikely to change, even if Arsenal were to offer the £10.5 release clause in the France striker’s contract.
Chelsea are close to completing the deal and Remy, 27, will be a direct replacement for Fernando Torres, who will go on loan to AC Milan on a two-year deal.
Remy is Jose Mourinho’s choice of the available strikers in Europe to work as an understudy to Diego Costa.
The club have also sold Demba Ba and brought Didier Drogba back, leaving them with a strong range of options.
It looks as if, Remy aside, the club’s transfer business is done, with just the possibility of Marco Van Ginkel following Torres to Milan on loan.
