Former Liverpool star comments on Remy decision – Arsenal or Chelsea?

Loic Remy

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has his say on which club Queens Park Rangers star Loic Remy should move to - Arsenal or Chelsea.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho likes to deploy one striker up front, and this season that lucky man is Diego Costa.

The Spain international striker has featured in all three of the BluesPremier League matches so far this campaign and has scored four goals.

The 25-year-old has been superb and has looked worth every penny of the £32 million transfer fee that Chelsea had to pay Atletico Madrid earlier this summer for his services.

However, Mourinho is in the market for another striker due to the departure of Fernando Torres to AC Milan on a two-year loan deal.

Queens Park Rangers star Loic Remy is widely reported to be the Portuguese’s main target in the final days of the summer transfer window, and former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore believes that the France international will form a lethal partnership with Costa if Mourinho plays two up front.

However, Chelsea are not the only club interested in Remy. Arsenal are also looking for a striker due to a recent injury picked up by Olivier Giroud which is expected to keep him out of action until the New Year.

Remy failed a medical at Liverpool earlier this summer, but the interest in him from Chelsea and Arsenal means that the 27-year-old could still play for one of the biggest clubs in England this season.

And Collymore, who now works as a football pundit, believes that Remy is spoilt for choice.

It will be interesting to see what Remy does. As Collymore correctly points out, at Arsenal he is certainly going to get more games, but working with Mourinho and having the chance to win a number of trophies could prove to be too tempting to resist.
