 Metro reports Chelsea interest on Charlie Austin

Chelsea  would like sign the  QPR striker Charlie Austin if  Loic Remy leaves the city before the beginning of next season  as the strikers would stay in London or basically in South of the country.

Remy possibilities on leaving Chelsea are quite high as the arrival of Falcao  made a worser situation for him, reported a lack in the team  and  Mourinho might like replace him.
