Besiktas prepare loan move for Chelsea striker

Chelsea striker Loic Remy could be on his way to Besiktas if they get their way according Turkish sports newspaper AMK.

Per the source, Besiktas are plotting a loan move for the France international striker.

The Istanbul giants could be tempted into making a permanent offer should the Blues turn down the loan bid.

Remy is one of five strikers on the Besiktas shortlist as they continue efforts to sign a striker following Mario Gomez revealing that he will not return the club over the summer.

Gomez was on loan from Fiorentina and had an impressive season helping the Istanbul giants win the Super Lig title and earning his place back in the Germany national team as a result.

Besiktas have been closely linked with Remy for the past few seasons and came close to signing him last summer before ex manager blocked the move according to the Evening Standard.

The Eagles did also sign Demba Ba from the Blues back in 2014 before selling him to Shanghai Shenhua.

Remy does have another two-years remaining on his contract but he has struggled to settle in at Chelsea. The experienced striker has just 12 goals and three assists in 47 appearances for the Blues in all competitions since joining from QPR in 2012.
