Loic Remy set for crunch talks with Guus Hiddink amidst rumours of Chelsea exit

Chelsea striker Loic Remy will hold talks with recently appointed manager Guus Hiddink amidst rumours linking the Frenchman away from the club, according to the Daily Mail.

The 28-year-old joined the Blues from Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2014, but has found himself playing second fiddle to Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge since his arrival.

This is despite the fact Remy has proved himself a clinical goalscorer in the Premier League - and it appears his patience is wearing thin.

In an attempt to find out his role under Hiddink, Remy will discuss his future and, if convinced he will play no part, could consider pastures new in January.

It seems the striker wouldn't be without his suitors either, with Southampton recently joining Swansea and Crystal Palace in the race to land him.


With next summer's European Championships fast approaching, the 28-year-old will be desperate for game time to prove himself worthy of a place in Didier Deschamps’ national squad.

Karim Benzema has been suspended for an indefinite period from national team duties which could open the door for Remy to establish himself on the international stage.

His only competition appears to be Olivier Giroud, who has been in fine form for Premier League hopefuls Arsenal this season.

Currently in his second term with Chelsea, Remy has scored 12 goals in 40 games across all competitions - a reasonable record given his lack of starts.

Ligue 1 sides St. Etienne and Lille have also expressed interest in the Frenchman, though they will struggle to match the club and player's financial demands.
