Chelsea want Remy replacement before deal

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.
