Chelsea are reportedly set to give the green light to sell Loic Remy to Galatasaray as the Turkish giants look to sign a striker.
According to Turkish newspaper Sabah, Gala are drawing up a shortlist of candidates to replace Buruk Yilmaz, and that list includes the Frenchman.
Yilmaz has been linked with a move to West Ham ahead of the deadline, and so the Turkish outfit have set aside funds to sign Remy if he is open to the idea of leaving the Premier League champions.
Given that he is third choice behind Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao, the former Newcastle star could be interested in a fresh start elsewhere where he would be given more playing time.
However, that goes against what he has said previously when suggesting that he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge to continue to win trophies.
Remy has three years remaining on his contract with the Blues, and scored nine goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s men last season.
