21 year-old Olympique Lyon forward Loic Remy is attracting Premiership interest, and Newcastle United have been linked with the player for at least nine months.
Loic Remy – class player would be great young signing on Tyneside
Lyon is Remy’s home town club and they are now reported to being open to selling the youngster this summer, and have already been contacted by Newcastle United, Portsmouth and Tottenham about the player.
We have Lyon’s former captain for the last 5 years â€“ Claudio Cacapa – at the club and he can let Kevin know exactly what Remy is like.
We also have Nâ€™Zogbia playing in the French Under-21 squad â€“ and young Charles will have trained with Remy during the French Under-21 training sessions.
We also have a lot of French speaking players at the club right now in Geremi, N’Zogbia, Beye, Faye and N’Zogbia to name but a few, so if Newcastle do sign the youngster, he could acclimatize well and get plenty of support both on and off the field at the club.
Who is Loic Remy?
He is a promising young right-footed French striker, born on January 2, 1987 in Rillieux-la-Pape, France and can play as a striker or on the right wing.
He plays for his hometown club Olympique Lyonnais, for whom he has appeared 12 times.
He has been on loan to Lens this year and appeared 6 times for them and scored 3 goals.
Loic stands just over 6′ tall and has played once for the France Under-21 team and has also represented France at Under-18 and Under-19 levels.
Sounds to us like he’s the type of player we are looking for. Tottenham are also said to be interested – unfortunately.
Comments very welcome.
