Report: Chelsea want £15m for West Ham target Loic Remy

Crystal Palace, West Ham United, Swansea City and Southampton are all reportedly interested in Chelsea striker Loic Remy.

Chelsea will sell striker Loic Remy this summer but only for a transfer fee of £15 million, according to The Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Premier League champions Chelsea have put a price tag of £15m on the France international striker.

According to The Sun, the fee has “already scared off West Ham and Crystal Palace from making a serious move” for Remy.

Premier League duo Swansea City and Southampton are also interested in Remy, according to The Mirror.

Is Loic Remy worth £15m?

Remy was the second-choice striker at Chelsea in the recently concluded 2014-15 season and did not make a huge impact.

The former Marseille star scored seven goals and created five chances in 19 Premier League appearances for the Blues.

Remy had a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 59%, and won 11 headers, seven dribbles and two tackles.

Back in the 2013-14 season, the former Nice star played on loan for Newcastle United from Queens Park Rangers, scoring 14 goals and creating 30 chances in 26 Premier League games.

The Frenchman is one of the better strikers in the Premier League when he plays regularly, and £15m is not too big a transfer fee to pay for his services.
