Report: Swansea join three-club chase for prolific Chelsea striker
According to the Mirror, the race for Chelsea striker Loic Remy has taken another turn, with Garry Monk’s Swansea interested in his signature.
The prolific Frenchman is keen to play more regularly than he did in his debut season at Stamford Bridge, and despite demanding wages of £80,000 a week, three Premier League clubs are currently vying for his goal-scoring services.
Remy, who scored seven goals for the eventual Premier League champions having started in just six domestic starts, is being targeted by Southampton, Crystal Palace and now Swansea.
Since his arrival in England from Marseille, the Frenchman has played for three separate top-flight sides. At QPR, Newcastle and Chelsea he has featured 61 times, while scoring an impressive 27 league goals.
The South Wales outfit accumulated their best ever Premier League points tally in the campaign just ended, despite selling their star striker Wilfried Bony to Manchester City in the January transfer window.
Talented young manager Garry Monk is clearly looking to build on this success, with a somewhat ambitious approach for the proven Premier League striker.
