Chelsea set to snap up Liverpool reject

Chelsea are on the verge of signing QPR’s Loic Remy, with reports from the Daily Mail indicating that they’ve met the £8m release clause in his contract.

The Blues yesterday agreed to let Fernando Torres end his nightmare spell in west London, with the Spaniard set to join AC Milan on a two-year loan deal – which has effectively drawn his time at Stamford Bridge to a close.

Even after signing Diego Costa and Didier Drogba this summer, the exit of Torres has left a hole in Jose Mourinho’s attack, which he is ready to plug with Remy.

The French forward was on the verge of joining Liverpool a matter of weeks ago, but the switch collapsed after he failed a medical with the Merseysiders.

But it appears that the London club are ready to take the risk, with an £8m offer having rendered QPR unable to keep the 27-year-old.

Remy has already suggested that he wants to be playing Champions League football, and with Chelsea able to match his £80,000-per-week salary demands the move should go through before Monday’s transfer deadline.
