An Antonio Conte inspired overhaul has the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern dreaming with wide eyed wonderment about the busy summer of activity at Stamford Bridge 

While, naturally, much of the onus will focus on the big money arrivals, the Italian is likely perform a major squad cull on a group of players who performed so poorly last year.

One of those in particular, according to Turkish outlet Sabah (via Inside Futbol), is Loic Remy.

The Frenchman has struggled to truly impose himself on first-team proceedings since moving across West London from Queens Park Rangers in 2014, acting largely as a backup.

Even amid the continued the struggles of Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao for the early stage of this campaign, the 29-year old proved unable to breach the starting eleven.

Still, the former Newcastle United forward has proven a palpable goal threat everywhere he has been and must surely represent an attractive option should he become available.

According to the report, the Istanbul giants will attempt to lure him to Turkey as they look to improve on what was a hugely frustrating season.

Should Remy be kept on as a backup, considering the doubts over Costa?
