The race for the Chelsea forward has begun to heat up recently with Norwich set to battle Aston Villa for the Frenchman's signature this winter.

According to reports per the Sun, the out-of-favour Chelsea striker has been offered a lifeline with the Canaries boss Alex Neil keen on bringing in the striker to help them stay in the Premier League.

Aston Villa and Remi Garde have made it clear he wants the forward to join him at Villa Park and help with their own relegation battle.

The French manager is hoping to use their previous relationship at Lyon as an advantage to help secure his signature for the league's bottom club.

However the battle for the player could intensify over this January's window as Swansea are also thought to be interested in the potential availability of the forward, however, Chelsea boss Hiddink is reluctant to make his squad any thinner.

Remy has had a frustrating time at Stamford Bridge, scoring just one goal in as many starts in the Premier League this season and has also made seven appearances from the bench.

The French striker will be looking to move away from the Blues if he is unable to get regular first team football and with Euro 16 getting ever closer, his place in the hosts' squad is far from assured.

He had previously been involved with the French team that had made the quarter-finals of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

Remy, who can be utilised as a winger or striker, started his career with Lyon, before moving to Nice and Marseille, before making the move to England, when Queens Park Rangers had beaten Newcastle to the post and signed the Frenchman.

He would then head to the Geordie side six months later for a season-long loan spell, where he excelled and attracted Chelsea, amongst other top clubs, for his services.
