Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that French striker Loic Remy could still depart the Hoops in this transfer window.
This has been reported by The Express, who have claimed that Chelsea and Tottenham could look to land him before the close of the transfer window at the start of next month.
Top 7 club
Remy, of course, looked set for a move to Liverpool earlier this summer, but a failed medical scuppered his move to Merseyside. Newcastle United, meanwhile, who had the forward on their books last season, have also been linked with a move for Remy, but Redknapp has insisted that the striker didn't want to return to Alan Pardew's side.
Despite dismissing a potential move for Remy to Newcastle, Redknapp has opened the door to the player leaving for a top seven club in this window, which may ultimately alert the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea.
Speaking to reporters, Redknapp said: "He didn't want to go back to Newcastle which is a massive club, so unless it's a club in the top seven I don't think he'll go.
"If he goes you're looking for two strikers, which isn't easy to find."
Chelsea & Tottenham in need?
It remains to be seen as to whether Chelsea will step up their interest in the forward after Didier Drogba picked up an injury. It appears, though, that the Ivorian's injury isn't as bas as it first seemed, but Mourinho may still look for further cover in the attacking department.
With Drogba on board, Mourinho still has Spanish duo Fernando Torres and Diego Costa competing for places. It's likely that Costa will be the main man at the Bridge this season, but Remy would only help improve the club's attacking strengths.
Remy has proved his credentials in recent time having starred at Newcastle last season, and could play a key role at the Bridge. Tottenham, meanwhile, are in desperate need of improvement in attack.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino only has Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane competing for places, so could do with adding a proven Premier League goalscorer to his ranks.
QPR fans, meanwhile, will be hoping the London club can keep the French forward as they look to keep their status in England's elite division. The Hoops, though, will have to improve on their first outing after they were beaten 1-0 at Loftus Road against Hull City.
