Chelsea Closing In On £15.8m Deal To Sign Marseille Forward Loic Remy

Chelsea favourites to land French ace.

Chelsea are set to sign Marseille’s Loic Remy for £15.8m.

French football expert Matt Spiro is quoted as saying by the BBC: “Marseille sporting director Jose Anigo must be one of the busiest men in football today… RMC are reporting that Marseille are close to striking a deal with Chelsea for the France striker. The French radio station claim the Blues are ready to meet OM’s £15.8m asking price.”

It was reported that it would be Tottenham making a late move for the Frenchman, with the north Londoners having been heavily linked with Remy this summer.

However, it now appears that Chelsea could be stealing a march on their London rivals and they will hope a deal can be finalised before the friday midnight deadline.

Should Chelsea be successful in capturing Remy, the player will join a host of other attack-minded players to have arrived at Stamford Bridge, most notably Eden Hazard, Oscar and Victor Moses.

Remy has bagged 27 goals for Marseille since signing from Nice in 2010.
