Chelsea is believed to have got in touch with the Queens Park Rangers to enquiry if their striker Loic Remy is still up for sale or not. The blues have needed to do this because of the injury of one of their offensive players i.e. Didier Drogba.
Drogba injured himself while taking part in the pre-season match against Ferencvarosi last weekend.
QPR had almost sold Remy to Liverpool at the start of the summer at a transfer fee of about 10 million Euros, but, the player failed in passing the medical test conducted by the Reds and as a result, the deal couldn’t take place.
Remy was reported to be on the radar of a couple of London based clubs namely Arsenal and Totteham Hotspur as well before going to Anfield for medical.
As far as Drogba is concerned, he is all set to miss at least the first couple of league matches after hurting his ankle really badly. It remains to be known how severe his injury is.
Jose Mourinho, the Chelsea boss, seemed to be done with his transfer activities for the summer after bringing in ample resources for every department, but, now, he has to make his way back to the market again in search of an offensive option.
Meanwhile, Remy has been practicing with the Rangers squad. He is supposed to start for them against Hull City this weekend.
The QPR boss Harry Redknapp was talking about him in his interview the other day. He was quoted as saying, “Loic is still not there completely, but, he’s been putting in the hard yards and that’s what I love about him. I hope him to be fit enough to go into the Hull game.”
This is QPR’s return to the league. Last season, they had to play in the second tier after being relegated.
