Chelsea transfer news: France international strikes potential £10.3m deal despite Turkish giants interest

Loic Remy

Crystal Palace are set to loan Chelsea striker Loic Remy in a deal that could be worth £10.3 million if the Eagles activate his buyout clause option according to the Daily Star.

Remy was also closely linked with a move to Turkish champions Besiktas after club president held talks with the Blues in London over a loan move.

Turkish-Football sources can confirm that Orman made a second trip to England this month where he held talks with Chelsea over Remy and Manchester City over loaning Samir Nasri and Wilfried Bony.

Remy joined Chelsea on a £10.5 million move from QPR in 2014, signing a four-year deal with the Blues but failed to struggle in and scored just one goal all last season.

Recently appointed Blues boss Antonio Conte made it clear he had no plans for Remy after dropping him for the first two games of the season.

Palace also recently confirmed the signing of Christian Benteke from Liverpool, with the Belgian striker penning a four-year deal with the club – who Besiktas were also linked with.
