Chelsea confident they will sign Remy despite Arsenal talks

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are still confident of signing French striker Loic Remy despite major interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal. 

This has been reported by The Daily Mail, who have suggested that the Gunners are set to discuss personal terms with the QPR hitman as the race heats up before tomorrow's transfer deadline.

Torres replacement?

Chelsea fans will certainly be hoping that the club can tie up the deal to bring Remy to Stamford Bridge after it was suggested that the club had met the player's buyout clause. Spanish outcast Fernando Torres departed the club for AC Milan earlier this week, meaning the Blues only have the likes of Diego Costa and Didier Drogba in their forward line.

And it appears that Jose Mourinho has recognised Remy, who failed a medical at Liverpool earlier this summer, as the man he wants to improve his squad as they go in search of success. 

Arsenal in need 

Arsenal, on the other hand, are in desperate need of another striker before tomorrow's deadline, with Remy's international partner Olivier Giroud currently out on the sidelines with a long term injury. 

It's expected, then, that the Gunners will discuss personal terms with Remy, but it remains to be seen as to which club the forward will choose as he looks to take part in this year's Champions League campaign.
