Chelsea have reportedly agreed a deal with QPR for striker Loic Remy according to the Metro.

The Stamford Bridge side have met the 27 year old’s £8m release clause and will look to bring in the French international to boost their attack following the departure of flop forward Fernando Torres, who has moved to AC Milan on a two season long loan deal.

Jose Mourinho has seen summer signing Diego Costa ruled out with a hamstring injury and opted to not offer Samuel Eto’o a new contract when his short term deal with the west London side ended and also sold Demba Ba to Besiktas.

Remy had appeared to be on his way to Liverpool but the deal collapsed over a reported failed medical, though it should be noted that the former Marseille man has had two 90 minute run outs this season.

QPR are powerless to stop Remy leaving and there is no denying his ability to make an impact at Premier League level having bagged 14 goals in 24 starts during his season long loan spell at Newcastle United last term.
