Chelsea set to hold talks over French striker in London

Chelsea are set to hold talks with Besiktas over out-of-favour striker Loic Remy in London according to Lig Tv.

Per the source, Besiktas president Fikret Orman will travel to London for a meeting with Chelsea and will also make an enquiry regarding Remy while on his trip.

Besiktas have been close linked with Remy over the summer transfer window but their loan bid was turned down as Chelsea reportedly want a permanent deal.

The Istanbul giants do now have an additional €10 million windfall after Fenerbahce were knocked out of the Champions League playoffs.

The Daily Mail report that Chelsea have given Remy the green light to leave should Romelu Lukaku join from Everton.

However, there are conflicting reports that the Blues may use Remy as a bargaining chip in their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues could offer a transfer fee of £65 million in addition to the French striker according to the Express.

Per the source, the Blues are convinced that the deal will go ahead and Antonio Conte is quoted as saying: “I think in the future something can happen with the transfer market, in and out.  

“We know that in the future, different changes can happen, both in and out, with the players.”
