Reports from the Daily Star have claimed that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich won’t sanction the buying of a striker until Loic Remy is offloaded.

The Blues are reportedly in talks for a £10 million move for Corinthians striker Alexandre Pato, with Diego Costa their only fully fit striker.

Remy has struggled to hold down a first team place since his move to Stamford Bridge from QPR in 2014, scoring just 12 goals in 33 appearances. Only 13 of those have been starts.

Despite this, the Frenchman has attracted interest from fellow Premier League sides Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United.

However, Abramovich isn’t said to be keen on Remy, and is keen to see him gone before he allows any move for a striker.

No firm offer has been made for Remy, with manager Guus Hiddink earlier stating that Remy remained a Chelsea player.

Before the clash with West Bromwich Albion tonight at Stamford Bridge Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink spoke about the options he would have in his attack, claiming that Loic Remy – that was coping with an injury in the last weeks- will have his chances:

“With the multitude of games coming up I hope Loic Remy  will deliver if he is needed,” assured Hiddink.

I hope he and Diego Costa will stay fit and I hope Remy can make his next step and get even more fit. I haven’t seen that much of him because he has repeatedly got injured. I have seen him in training the last few days but before that it was yes, no, yes, no, so I am curious.

Falcao is just with the physios working. It is purely medical what he is doing now; he is not on the pitch. He is completely in the doctors’ and physios’ hands. If he is declared fit then it will take time to get him game-fit so I don’t know how long, I don’t know how many weeks [before he is available].

The Daily Express have claimed that both Tottenham Hotspur and Turkish side Galatasaray are both interested in Chelsea striker Loic Remy. 

The report from the Daily Express comes after fellow Premier League sides Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Newcasstle United  all registered their interest in the Frenchman.

Remy has struggled for form since his £8.5 million move from QPR in 2014, and has failed to secure a first team place.

The Express claim that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is eyeing Remy as a strike partner for Harry Kane, and is hoping to secure a cheap deal in the January transfer window.

However, it is believed Chelsea want £9 million for Remy.

Galatasary are also in need of a striker, sitting 11 points behind league leaders Besiktas.

Guus Hiddink’s press conference ahead of WBA’s clash live from Cobham:

“Diego Costa is ok, he got a strong contusion on the knee, but not in the joint so we were lucky. He was soon back to training. Remy has beeen back to train with the group since two days, Hazard is not ok: he was on the pitch today with the physios but he is still not available.

“We want to have him fit. It’s better a little bit late than too early.”

“For me to perform good is a sign of freshness, Hazard had some physical problems this year, if you see yesterday the Ballon d’Or, these people have freshness every year”

“All the players get proper attention, also individually, but we will give Hazard the time to come back”

“I’m aware that Ivanovic is talking for his renewal, but I don’t have any announcement to do.

“If we think we have to do a move in the market to cover some position, it stays between the board and me.

“So far, it didn’t seem to me that the market has been so busy.

“We have made a good sequence of result in the previous games, we hope to continue, now we got a busy schedule, if we can go with that it’s a good point.

“I think for the Ballon d’Or you have to establish yourself not just for one season. Hazard is capable for the future, but there are huge demands”

“I think Messi can be successful in the Premier League, anywhere, what I like of him is that he’s always hungry, he is excellent, so nice to see, so easy, that’s way he’s nice to see.

“We have a lot of games to go and I was happy with Loftus-Cheek’s performance last Saturday, he has still to get experience, but whenever it’s possible he will have his chance. He has to mature, but that’s ok.

“Have I ever been bored watching my teams? You cannot play every game in the season as an exciting game, you cannot expect it.

“We have to go step by step, and also young players will have chances.

“Some of our youngsters are getting better every day, Kenedy is one of those young guys, I think he did very well in the last game when he entered, I like his penetration, for the moment he will stay at least until the end of the season.

“Youngsters must have basic qualities to get chances.”

Remy, and the team for which his good form is such a huge contribution

Chelsea are reluctant to let striker Loic Remy leave without finding a replacement first, the Daily Mail claim.

The Frenchman has attracted interest from Premier League Aston Villa, Newcastle and Crystal Palace in recent weeks.

Remy has failed to secure a first-team place since his £8.5 million move from QPR last year, and has started just once this season with seven substitute appearances.

However, the Blues are reportedly looking to secure cover for Remy should he leave, having been linked with Lokomotiv Moscow striker Oumar Niasse in recent days.

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink has criticised his Aston Villa counterpart Remi Garde regarding his public interest in Loic Remy. 

Garde openly stated earlier this week that the Frenchman would be “an interesting player” for his Villa side, who are four points adrift at the bottom of the table. They have just seven points after 19 games.

It is unclear if both Remy or indeed Chelsea are interested in a deal, but Hiddink has criticised Garde for publicising his desire to sign the player:

You have to respect where the players are,” Hiddink said.

If you are interested, talk first to the people with whom they are contracted. You cannot go into details.”

“The player has signed a contract here and must be fit for us.”

Remy has struggled to hold down a first team place since his £8.5 million transfer from QPR last year. But, Hiddink says injuries have had a part to play, and will effect any potential deal.

He’s having a difficult time regarding his injuries. He has had a calf problem for several days.” he said.

“He has to prove first of all that he’s a good Chelsea player.

Guus Hiddink spoke to the press before the Premier League game with Crystal Palace:

‘We had two tough games, the physical intensity was high in both games, but in principle we didn’t get big damage.

“Oscar was a bit hurt, Willian got some tackles, Eden too. It was intense but today they were recovering on the pitch which means they are okay.

“Cesc was here in this morning. We played a full game with the Academy and he played the full game. He is over his temperature problems.

“Falcao I doubt [will be fit for Sunday]. He has the same injury as last week when we tested him. Loic Remy is also doubtful.

Gary Cahill didn’t go on to the pitch this morning which means he has a little problem but we have several days to go in preparation for Sunday so I’m not negative regarding Cahill. He has an ankle injury. Some ligaments are a little bit tight.”

Hiddink spoke also about next opponent, Crystal Palace:

“Crystal Palace are doing well. Alan Pardew has done a marvellous job in the period he has been working there.

“If you look at the statistics you have a team that has scored 23 goals in 19 games and just conceded 16 which means he is well-organised with his team.

“We have started gathering some points. It was the third consecutive game we didn’t lose but that’s not enough. We must come now in to a winning period of games, that’s important.

“You see how it is, all the big teams are losing points as well. Nowadays it’s very difficult and if you see where our next opponent is in the table they are close to the Champions League positions. So it’s not that easy now to have a long-term winning sequence but we have to go there.

On Steve Holland and his staff, he said:

“I have been working now for the last week and more with my staff, and I’m very happy with what Steve Holland and the staff bring.

“I am very impressed with how well he manages and how well he co-operates, so that should be a signal for clubs to not be afraid and every now and then at least interview British managers as well. In my opinion even though they might not have big names they should be given opportunities to do bigger jobs than they normally do.”

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink dismissed rumours about Cesc Fabregas and Loic Remy leaving the club in January:

“We need all the players here until the end of the season,” he claimed.

“You know better than I do that Chelsea are still in a position where we have to improve to get up the table, so we need all the players at the moment. So we don’t talk about the rumours.

Cesc is coming in with a smile, which is what I always like. They come in with a smile and not a worn out face.”

The same applies to Remy,” said the Dutch manager.

“He’s our player. We don’t go into that. If you have seen the previous match when Diego [Costa] was out, and we had some other injured players…

“I hope they recover very fast to be available. We need a double occupation for all the positions, and we didn’t have that.”

“The window is wide open. We’ll see. I’m not going in advance to talk about those things. It’s a bit ‘if’. I’ll talk in-house.”

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew is keen to complete a loan deal for Chelsea striker Loic Remy in the January transfer window, the Sun claims. 

Pardew is short of attacking options after fellow Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford personally ended his “terrible” loan spell at Selhurst Park.

Remy has been a long-term target of the Eagles boss, who worked with the Frenchman at Newcastle.

However, Remy is also a target for Aston Villa, with Villains boss Remi Garde openly stating yesterday that he wanted the former QPR frontman.

However, having recently received £100 million worth of investment recently, Pardew has money to spend, with Remy’s future at Stamford Bridge unclear after the departure of Jose Mourinho. He has also struggled to establish a first-team place since his £8.5 million arrival from QPR in 2014.



Chelsea are interested in AS Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy, according to SkySports. The 23-year-old Frenchman has reportedly emerged as an alternative to Juventus wing-back Alex Sandro. Also Manchester City are...
