Published Add your comment

Chelsea have completed the signing of Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers.

Following the departure of Fernando Torres to AC Milan on a loan deal, Jose Mourinho has moved quickly to get his quota of senior strikers back up to three. The addition of Loic Remy sees the Frenchman sign a four-year deal.

Arsenal interest

Arsenal were believed to be late contenders for his signature, with Arsene Wenger reportedly in talks with QPR over meeting the club’s £8.5m release clause.

But the Gunners boss will now be forced to look elsewhere as the Arsenal target has joined their London rivals. Remy will compete with Diego Costa and Didier Drogba for a place at the top of Mourinho’s formation.

And the French international, who travelled to the World Cup this summer, admitted that Chelsea were always his first choice when he found out about the club’s interest.

Very happy to sign

“I feel very happy and very proud,” Remy told Chelsea’s official website. “When I heard Chelsea wanted to sign me I said ‘let’s go’ straight away because they are one of the best clubs in the world.

“I remember the amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge when I played there for Marseille and I can’t wait to play for the first time in front of my new fans.”

Season at Newcastle 

Remy spent last season on loan at Newcastle, where he scored 14 goals. His experience of the Premier League means that Mourinho has the perfect back-up to Costa, his other summer striker signing.

The Spain international has taken to life in west London, scoring two more yesterday in Chelsea’s 6-3 away victory over Everton.
