Palace are reconsidering their move for Loic Remy after Chelsea slap a £15 million price tag on the French striker…
The move looked a distinct possibility when Chelsea agreed the loan deal for Falcao. A move that possibly relegates Remy to third choice at Stamford Bridge, or at best squabbling for second choice behind Diego Costa. Remy started just six PL matches last season, most of his contributions coming as a late substitute for Didier Drogba. And with Euro 2016 looming Remy will relish the opportunity to get maximum minutes in the pitch. His pedigree is proven and manager Pardew knows him well from his time at Newcastle, where he produced arguably the best form of his career – hitting 14 goals in 24 matches. His reported £80k a week wages are not a problem, but a £15 million transfer fee for a 28 year old with limited sell-on value might prove a stumbling block. Jun 19 - 5:05 AM

The chances of Loic Remy leaving Chelsea are increasing by the minute.

Chelsea are reportedly getting closer and closer to signing Radamel Falcao and if they are able to do that, Loic Remy might be on the way out. The combination of Remy wanting playing time and Chelsea needing to balance the books might send the player to another club. SkyBet has West Ham leading the race to sign Remy with odds of 5/6 with Crystal Palace coming in second at 4/1. Sunderland, Southampton, and Swansea are also in the running with odds of 10/1 or higher. Remy's fantasy value will increase greatly if he moves away from Stamford Bridge and it will depend heavily on where he ends up.

Loic Remy scored twice to give Chelsea one last win in the Premier League this season, this time a 3-1 win over Sunderland.

The Blues finish the season with 87 points and an eight point lead on Manchester City but it could have easily been more if they didn't get complacent in the last couple of weeks. Loic Remy showed he possesses the quality needed at the top level as he's done all season when filling in for the injured Diego Costa. Costa also scored today and the Chelsea striker force goes into next season healthy and in form. The Blues are already the favorites for the title next season and Costa and Remy will be big part of their run.

Loic Remy will be available for week 35 as Chelsea host Crystal Palace.

We don't know who will start for the Blues so it's recommended to avoid their forwards in formats where you can't make changes past the first match lineup lock. In daily leagues and leagues where you can make changes up to each individual kickoff, the starting Chelsea forward, whether it is Loic Remy or Didier Drogba, will have good fantasy value.

Loic Remy remains questionable for gameweek 33 with a calf injury.

Jose Mourinho stated today that he "doesn't know" if Remy will be fit for the derby against Manchester United this weekend but has a better than 50/50 chance. That tells us almost nothing about who will start against Manchester so we would recommend avoiding both Remy and Didier Drogba in leagues where the lineups lock at the first match. Hopefully Remy plays at least some part of this match and is then nailed on as a starter for the double gameweek coming up in week 34.

Loic Remy was a surprise omission from the Chelsea squad after picking up a muscle injury during the build-up to Sundays’ derby at Loftus Road.

Remy was touted as the player to carry Chelsea to the Premier League title during the absence of Diego Costa but a kick to the calf in training on Saturday ruled the Frenchman out of GW32. Initial reports indicate the problem is only impact which should see a return for visit of Manchester United although if further tests do reveal a strain then the striker could spend weeks on the sidelines. Isaiah Brown who was in Switzerland for the under-19s [UEFA Youth League tournament] was flown back to take his place on the bench. Jose Mourinho is hoping Diego Costa will be available for the Crystal Palace game in early May.

Jose Mourinho has showered Loic Remy with praise ahead of an increased role that comes as a result of Diego Costa's injury.

Costa has been ruled out for at least two weeks and Loic Remy will be the guy leading the Chelsea line in his absence. Mourinho has boosted the youngster's confidence ahead of week 32, noting that Remy has netted two match winners in the past two games. Chelsea create enough chances for their strikers to make Remy into a great fantasy option in the upcoming weeks. To top off is value, Chelsea face QPR next in what should be an easy win. Use Remy with confidence until Costa returns.

Thibaut Courtois was indebted to Loic Remy after his late winner extended Chelsea's Premier League lead over Manchester City to six points.

It was extraordinary game at the KC Stadium as Chelsea blew a 2-0 lead against a spirited Hull City only to take the three point thanks to substitute Loic Remy. The away side took the lead inside two minutes as Eden Hazard went on a trademark weaving run before hitting a fine strike from 20 yards out. It was two by the ninth minute as Diego Costa scored another superb individual goal, but Hull fought back with two goals of their own in the space of 74 seconds as Ahmed Elmohamady slid the ball home and before Abel Hernandez took advantage of an error by Courtois to level things up. The score remained the same until Remy replaced the injured Costa and the substitute scored within a minute of coming on to seal a 3-2 victory which keeps the Blues six points clear of Manchester City with a game in hand. Hull remain 16th, but they can be proud of their performance; keep this level of effort and they will stay out of trouble.

Chelsea and Manchester City settled for a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge today.

Chelsea opened up the scoring in the 41st minute after an incredible combination that started with Branislav Ivanovic. Ivanovic played a great ball across the pitch to Hazard, who was able to lay it through right in front of goal with just a touch where Loic Remy finished calmly. Just minutes later, David Silva equalized after deflecting a Sergio Aguero shot. Things were quiet in the second half and Chelsea chose to defend and settle for a point. It's a good result for the London club as they were missing Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas and currently have a five point lead on top of the table.

Chelsea are expected to be without Loic Remy for this weekends’ trip to Old Trafford as the striker hobbled to the sidelines moments after he opened the scoring in Tuesday nights’ UEFA Champions League victory over Maribor.

The summer signing from QPR was starting his second consecutive game in the absence of Diego Costa [hamstring] while Didier Drogba is still regaining match-fitness following his recovery from an ankle injury. Prior to the game Mourinho had envisaged his Ivorian striker would complete around 30 minutes, however with the potential loss of Remy and Costa for game week nine tonights’ extended run out [75 minutes] could stand Drogba in good stead for his first league start since returning to the Bridge from Galatasaray. If a post-match assessment confirms Loic Remy has indeed suffered a muscle tear then the French international can expect at least two weeks out meaning he would miss the upcoming games against Manchester United and Liverpool.

Queens Park Rangers' striker Loic Remy has completed a move to Chelsea on a four year deal.

The Blues were a bit scared earlier this week when Diego Costa suffered a minor injury and his status was unsure going forward. It seems the situation has inspired them to bring Loic Remy to town and they've finalized the transfer. Reports have also said that Remy has passed his physical, which was not as straight forward as usual since he failed a physical at Liverpool earlier this summer. Remy's fantasy value has taken a big dive with the transfer, as he is now strictly a backup to Diego Costa and will have to battle Didier Drogba for backup duties.

There are rumors circulating the internet about Loic Remy making a move to Chelsea.

The rumor says that Jose Mourinho has triggered Loic Remy's release clause. If that's the case and Remy does indeed move to Chelsea, he will be battling with Didier Drogba for the backup striker spot behind Diego Costa. Costa is the man at Chelsea at the moment after scoring four goals in the his first three matches and the Spaniard won't be losing his starting job anytime soon. Remy will lose almost all fantasy value if he moves to Stamford Bridge.

Queen Park Rangers have confirmed the signing of Chile forward Eduardo Vargas on a season-long loan from Napoli.

24-year-old Vargas underwent a successful medical with QPR in London on Wednesday afternoon and will join officially in the coming days once a work permit has been approved. His arrival leaves Harry Redknapp with the four striker he wanted - Vargas, Loic Remy, Charlie Austin and Bobby Zamora - which should be enough fire-power to keep the club away from relegation this season. There is the possibility of Remy leaving before the transfer deadline day, but an asking price of £20million is likely to put off any potential suitors.

Harry Redknapp is confident Loic Remy will be available for Saturdays season opener against Hull City.

The Queens Park Rangers coach confirmed during today’s pre-match press conference that the striker has trained ahead of the game and the early indications are good. Redknapp commented on the player’s commitment and attitude since the breakdown of his proposed move to Liverpool suggesting Remy will be involved in some capacity. However Adel Taarabt is set to miss out having failed to train since his return from a loan spell in Italy; the Moroccan international is hoping to secure a move away from Loftus Road.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew continues to 'monitor' Loic Remy's situation after a move to Liverpool broke down.

We're no clearer as to why Remy's move to Liverpool broke down, with Harry Redknapp denying claims the striker failed a medical, but for now he remains at QPR. That could change if Alan Pardew formally renews interest in a player who scored 14 goals for Newcastle during last season's impressive loan spell. If Remy can prove his fitness then he would be a fine signing for any Premier League club
