Chelsea will wait to confirm the arrival of Alexandre Pato from Corinthians before allowing Loic Remy the freedom to seek a transfer away from Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Brazilian is reportedly on the brink of joining the Blues on loan, which could see Remy depart the club following what has been a frustrating season for the Frenchman.

Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace are keen on bolstering their attacking options and see the Chelsea striker as the solution to their recent struggles in front of goal.

The Eagles have scored just once in their past six league games, with a Jan Vertonghen own goal last weekend against Tottenham the sole occasion they've found the net during such time.

Remy, who has previously worked with Pardew at Newcastle United, has just one Premier League goal to his name this season, though his experiences with Queens Park Rangers and the aforementioned Magpies suggest he could still cut it in England's top-flight.

Palace face competition for the France international's signature, with Steve McClaren's Newcastle, Leicester City and Tottenham all reportedly interested. It's suggested Remy is keen to remain in London, however.


It seems the Brazilian Pato's move to Chelsea is close to completion, with the striker having arrived in London on Wednesday lunchtime to finalise his six-month loan move.

Reports suggest a three-year deal and £7 million fee have also been agreed in principle should the Blues decide to make Pato's transfer a permanent one, depending on his performances and contributions between now and the end of the season.
