Representatives of Loic Remy are in talks with Arsenal whlie Tottenham have made a concrete offer, but the striker would prefer a move to Chelsea, reports the Metro.
The France international is on his way to the World Cup with Les Bleus after a stunning season with Newcastle United in the Premier League. In 26 games, Remy scored an impressive 14 goals whilst on loan from QPR and is set to leave the Hoops despite their successful promotion bid.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham have moved fast in the early stages of the transfer window, opening talks with Remy's representatives to try to negotiate a move to north London.
Reports in France, as cited by the Metro, claim that Tottenham have made the 27-year-old a concrete offer while talks are ongoing with officials from the Emirates Stadium.
However, Remy is still hopeful that his dream club will come in for him and is willing to hold out on Spurs and the Gunners to see if Chelsea make an offer.
Jose Mourinho does require more than one striker in the summer transfer window as Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku are both likely leave Stamford Bridge while Samuel Eto'o was officially released last week.
Mourinho's prime target has been Diego Costa, but the Special One will be seeking more budget options as he tried to keep Chelsea on the right side of Uefa's Financial Fair Play regulations.
Remy has already hinted he's not keen on returning to Newcastle United, telling L'Equipe: "The World Cup is a window. Newcastle want me but I don’t know if I’ll stay. It’s a pivotal moment. Things could take off.. or stagnate."
It seems that what Remy would consider 'taking off' is completing a dream move to Stamford Bridge, delivering a fresh transfer blow to their London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham in the process.
