The Chelsea striker played under Pardew at Newcastle United in a successful loan spell during the 2013-14 season in which he netted 14 league goals and the relationship between the pair could seal the deal.

Upon leaving his parent club Queens Park Rangers for their West London rivals last summer, Remy has found first-team opportunities limited mainly down to the impressive form of Diego Costa.

When the Spanish international was sidelined in the latter part of the campaign with a hamstring injury, Remy couldn’t take advantage as he picked up a knock which kept him out of the side for an extended period.

Of the Frenchman’s 20 league appearances only six were starts, but he has still shown he has a eye for goal as seen with crucial winners for the Blues against Hull City and Stoke City respectively.

Jose Mourinho is desperate to keep hold of the £10million rated striker but could concede defeat due to Remy’s hopes of featuring regularly next season.

With a move for Radamel Falcao edging closer to completion according to Telegraph Sport, it would appear Remy is likely to be third choice striker should he remain at Stamford Bridge next season.

A switch to Selhurst Park could be beneficial for the former Marseille man as he would likely be a regular in the Eagles’ starting XI given their lack of striking options at the moment.
