Chelsea have officially completed the signing of QPR forward Loic Remy.

The Blues have reportedly paid £10.5m for the 27 year old, the fee needed to trigger the former Marseille man’s release clause, with Jose Mourinho looking to the French international to beef up his attack.

Remy scored six goals in 13 Premier League appearances in his first campaign at QPR, joining in January 2013, but was unable to prevent the west London side from suffering relegation to the Championship.

Last term Remy excelled at Newcastle United, scoring 14 goals in 24 Premier League starts during his season long loan spell at St James’ Park.

Having allowed Samuel Eto’o to leave and sold Demba Ba to Besiktas and loaned Fernando Torres to AC Milan Jose Mourinho finds himself in need of additional striking options and Remy may prove a very wise back-up to summer signing Diego Costa.

Remy has signed a four year deal with Chelsea and expressed his delight at making the move from QPR to their near neighbours.

‘I feel very happy and very proud. When I heard Chelsea wanted to sign me I said “let’s go” straight away because they are one of the best clubs in the world. I remember the amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge when I played there for Marseille and I can’t wait to play for the first time in front of my new fans.’
