Newcastle Target Having Chelsea Medical

QPR manager Harry Redknapp confirmed on Saturday that Loic Remy will be joining Chelsea as a replacement for Fernando Torres in the next 48 hours, and it seems that Remy will get his wish and join a top four club in England – with Arsenal also said to  be interested in signing the French striker.

Loic Remy could yet join Debuchy at Arsenal

And Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho had this to say about Loic Remy after his side’s astonishing 6-3 win at Everton yesterday:

“I know that we’re trying since yesterday to get Loic Remy, since we knew Fernando was leaving.” “Now it’s time to make some calls and have news. We have a fantastic doctor and I trust him completely. They will identify any problem.”

“He has lots of people working with him in different areas, and for sure we’ll try to identify clearly what the situation is.” “The information we have from specialists in different areas is that he does not have a problem to play football.”

But it’s not yet a done deal with Remy thought to be having a medical, but Arsenal have made a last-minute bid to sign the striker in an attempt to scupper Chelsea’s move for the striker.

Chelsea are said to be close to agreeing wages with Remy after meeting the Frenchman’s £8M release clause in his contract – but last night Arsenal contacted QPR to confirm they were also willing to pay the £8M and presumably will now have a chance to persuade Remy to join them.

The Gunners had pulled out of a move for the 27 year-old striker earlier this summer over his wage demands.

Arsenal could still pip Chelsea to the player and are keen to replace the injured French International striker Olivier Giroud, who is out injured until at least next year.

So it seems Remy could still make another last minute move and land up at Arsenal rather than Chelsea – and he seems to be making a habit of it after moving to QPR at the last minute in January of last year, after Newcastle had a verbal agreement from him and his representatives that he would join Newcastle.

We’re not sure who Newcastle can bring in as a striker in the next two days of the transfer window, with Alexandre Lacazette wanting to stay at Lyon for the season.

We had two of our back four players (Janmaat and Williamson) score for us yesterday in the disappointing 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace, and our forwards  are still having trouble  being able to put the ball into the back of the net.

    Remy was never a Newcastle player ?

    In spite of him being here on loan for a year, i just knew from the start something like this would happen.

    But for the trainer to start apportioning blame for this fact just goes to show what sort of Circus act we have running the club at the moment ! But where does it say that Pardew is blaming the Support for this Transfer?

    I dont understand it. You had a lad who scored goals for you and seemed to get on ok with everyone yet you was looking for a striker and even tho the price was right you didnt sign him.
    Im not sure if hes the right guy for us but I know we need a striker badly and he will get playing time so will be given his chance to make a good impression.
    Will see you all when we come up there for a bottle of dog and a Dickmans pie.
