Chelsea flop dropped from squad amid exit talk

Chelsea striker Loic Remy was not included in the match day squad in the Blues first Premier League game of the season against West Ham on Monday.

The Blues ended up winning the London derby 2-1 but Remy’s omission signals that he could be on his way out before the end of the transfer window.

The French striker has been targeted by Turkish giants Besiktas who are still on the hunt for a replacement for Mario Gomez.

Gomez decided not to return to Besiktas following the end of his loan move last season where he finished the season as top scorer and played a key role in the Black Eagles lifting the league title.

Besiktas president Fikret Orman has travelled to London to hold talks with the Blues over the potential of loaning Remy according to Fanatik.

The Mirror report that the Istanbul giants could face competition from French giants Lyon who targeting Remy as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette should Arsenal sign the star striker.
