Premier League side increase interest in Chelsea striker

remyy77Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a busy few days to end the transfer window at their club, as they’ve shotgunned the sofas so that they have the best seats in the house for the window’s finale.

The Telegraph states Newcastle United are set to increase their interest in Chelsea striker Loic Remy, as they’re ready to switch their sights away from West Brom forward Saido Berahino.

Remy enjoyed a successful stint on Tyneside two years ago, whilst on-loan from QPR, but has struggled to make an impression during his time at Stamford Bridge, finding himself behind Diego Costa in the pecking order.

The striker is keen to leave the club during the window to increase his changes of landing a spot in France’s squad for the European Championship squad, with the Magpies happy to take the forward on-loan or permanently.

29-year-old Remy may have to take a pay cut to return to the North East though, as Newcastle will not be able to afford his £85k-a-week wages.

Our landlord believes Newcastle should find the cash quickly, as he states Remy is a striker that could keep the Toon in the top-flight.

Chelsea fans, will Remy leave before the window closes? Let us know in the comments below!
