Chelsea have contacted QPR over the availability of French striker Loic Remy after the club agreed to loan Spanish striker Fernando Torres to AC Milan for two years, according to the Daily Mail.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho will be left with just two strikers following the departure of Torres, and it appears that he's on the lookout to bring one more forward to Stamford Bridge before the close of the transfer window.
Spanish striker Torres has endured a nightmare stint at the Bridge after joining the club from Liverpool for a then British record fee of £50 million. With just 45 goals in 172 games for the club, the forward - who is on a staggering £150,000-a-week - will be desperate to get his career back on track in the Serie A.
The Daily Mail have reported that Torres will undergo a medical in Milan tomorrow, as he looks set for his first stint in Italy's elite division. Many Chelsea fans will be pleased to see him leave the Bridge after three and a half years at the club, but it remains to be seen as to whether he can rediscover his form of old at AC Milan.
Torres will, of course, look to replace controversial striker Mario Balotelli, who joined his previous club Liverpool earlier this week. Milan will be looking to improve this term after a poor season last time out.
With Torres out of the Chelsea exit door, it appears that Remy, who has also been linked to Arsenal, could be on his way to the club. The forward - who looked set to join Liverpool before a failed medical earlier on in this transfer window - has proved his credentials in the Premier League in recent time.
Remy produced a number of magnificent displays while on loan at Newcastle United last season, and would certainly improve Mourinho's options in attack. It's likely that Spanish striker Diego Costa will be the Blues' main man in attack throughout this season, with veteran Didier Drogba also looking to play his part.
If the club do manage to lure Remy to the club - either on a permanent or temporary basis - then the appeal of Champions League football will certainly excite the Frenchman.
