The 28-year-old French international is keen to secure regular first team action and the arrival of loaned in Colombian Radamel Falcao will leave Remy even more likely to want a Stamford Bridge exit.

Remy provided very able support to first choice striker Diego Costa in 2014/15, scoring seven goals despite making just six Premier League starts, and a move to Istanbul based side Besiktas may tempt the experienced marksman.

Chelsea paid QPR £8.5m for Remy last August and would demand a fee in excess of that sum.

If Jose Mourinho elects to allow Remy to leave he could then turn to youngster Patrick Bamford to offer further strength in depth in the final third, the England Under 21 international having greatly impressed during his season on loan at Middlesbrough last term.
