26 year-old Corinthians and former AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato will be arriving at Chelsea this week and that will see Loic Remy fall even further down the totem pole at the south London club.
Loic Remy is very keen to play first team football thorough the rest of the season, so he has some hope of making the French squad for the Euro 2016 finals to be played in France in June – and he will not get that at Chelsea.
Loic Remy – when on loan at Newcastle
With Pato´s arrival it´s almost certain that Loic Remy will be made available by new manager Guus Hiddink Remy but Newcastle at the moment are trying to sign West Brom striker Loic Remy.
Newcastle do have a plan B if they cannot get Berahino in the next couple of days and we have to believe that could be to go all-out to get Loic in on loan, because he´s a proven Premier League goalscorer and would settle very quickly at Newcastle.
While on loan during the 2013-2014 season for us he scored 14 league goals in 26 Premier League appearances for the side – a good record.
However, his history with Newcastle is not all that great and he turned us down for bottom-placed QPR three years ago when we were again in relegation trouble.
Loic also turned Newcastle down at the end of his loan spell on Tyneside because he wanted to sign for a bigger club playing in the Champions League.
He failed a medical in Boston so didn´t join Liverpool, but he then signed on at Chelsea very late in the 2014 summer transfer window – but has not played much for the Blues and has never been a regular first team starter.
He could do a good job for us this season and he´s a better option than signing 30 year-old Bafe Gomis for £7M from Swansea.
Why not keep the £7M for the new striker who will be coming in permanently over the summer and go all out to get Loic in for a relatively small loan fee.
