News today from inside the Marseilles club that they would be willing to sell their striker Loic Remy if a big club came in for him, and also admitted he’s been hampered by a lot of injuries this season.
Loic Remy – Marseilles ready to sell
Alan Pardew must bring in another striker in January, and the sooner the better, as the striker who has scored around half our goals this season – Demba Ba – has already left the club for Chelsea.
As we reported earlier today, it looks like Harry Redknapp’s efforts to persuade the striker to join bottom of the league QPR have already failed, so it would seem that Newcastle could be in a good position to sign the striker, and we’re sure his team mate Joey Barton will have said some positive things to say about Newcastle and their fans – anyway we hope that’s the case.
The Marseilles Sporting Director Jose Anigo has said the France international could be sold in the transfer window.
This is what Anigo told L’Equipe today:
“Some English clubs are looking at our players and have not yet come knocking on the door.” “It will come. The only window of opportunity at the moment is for Loic Remy, if a big club comes for him and he is interested. We will see, but otherwise no one will go.”
“His succession of injuries has hampered him, and saw him miss the Euros. But I think he is back. I can see in training there is a renewed confidence.” “But if he left, we still have a strong attack with Andre-Pierre Gignac and Jordan Ayew. We are well armed.”
Remy has class, but he’s certainly not had a great season, and starts on the bench for Marseilles these days, and if Newcastle sign him it will be by the old adage that form is temporary but class is permanent.
We think Remy would be a great singing for the club, but we’ll still have only three strikers available, and hope we can score enough goals through the end of the season.
