Chelsea striker set for £11.5m club record Leicester City move

Chelsea striker Loic Remy is set to make a £11.5m switch to Premier League leaders Leicester City, report the Sun.

The Frenchman has been widely tipped to depart Stamford Bridge this month amid the turmoil dogging the fallen Premier League champions.

As Euro 2016 approaches, the 29-year old is reportedly aiming to leave in order to stake a claim for a starting berth in the French squad this summer.

The Sun claim a deal is set to be completed this weekend, with the Foxes having initially made an enquiry over a loan deal.

However, they were told the Blues were only aiming to strike an agreement for a permanent transfer.

Now, the former QPR and Newcastle United marksman could soon become the club’s most expensive ever signing.

Aston Villa, Swansea City and a return to Newcastle have all been touted as possible destinations, though the King Power Stadium now looks to be the most likely landing spot.
