New suitors for Chelsea attacking talent who’s also wanted by EPL sides

Posted by

AS Monaco are the latest side understood to be keen on signing Chelsea forward Loic Remy during the January transfer window.

L’Equipe [via Le Figaro] report that the French striker is keen on getting playing time ahead of the second half of the season, surely with  view to nailing down a spot in the France squad at the European Championships next summer.

Remy has struggled to assert himself at Chelsea since moving to Stamford Bridge from Queens Park Rangers in 2014, and has managed just one start in the Premier League this season. While the 29-year-old has managed another seven substitute appearances, he has scored only one goal all campaign, and has seen only 146 minutes despite Diego Costa’s relative failure.

According to the French source, Remy is being eyed by Monaco, who are considering a loan move for the ex-OGC Nice forward.

However, the Club of the Principality face competition for the player’s signature, with the Daily Mail noting that Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and former club Newcastle United are all understood to be keen on the attacker, who has appeared to be a near-guarantee of goals if given the opportunity to shine.
