Beşiktaş press officer Metin Albayrak has hinted that Chelsea striker Loic Remy could join any time now.

Albayrak was asked about the latest status of the Remy talks with Chelsea in a press conference held at the teams training grounds in Germany.

“A defender and striker could join us early, it could be any time now our transfer and foreign relations chief Erdal Torunoğulları is currently working on it,” he was quoted as saying by NTV Spor.

Beşiktaş president Fikret Orman is also reported to be in London according to Eurosport TR and the report claims that the Black Eagles are keen to wrap up the transfer before the end of the week.

The Istanbul giants are in the transfer market for a new forward after selling last seasons top scorer Demba Ba – 27 goals – to the Chinese club  Shanghai Shenhua for €13 million last week.

Remy has found himself on the fridges of the squad after being signed from QPR last summer but still has three-years left on his contract.
