Newcastle, Aston Villa, Swansea, Norwich and Crystal Palace have all been offered Loic Remy of Chelsea, the Chronicle reports.
Now that the Blues have recovered their form, with Diego Costa scoring freely again, Remy has dropped out of favour. He was left out of Guus Hiddink’s squad for Sunday’s game against Palace, and an exit from Stamford Bridge is looking extremely likely in January.
Chelsea have gone far enough to offer Remy out to a selection of Premier League sides, with a number of relegation contenders, as well as Palace, given the chance to sign the French forward.
The report claims that a loan move is most likely for the striker, and he would be a quick fix for a number of sides in need of a proven Premier League goalscorer.
The Magpies are set to be without Papiss Cisse for an extended period of time through injury, whilst their other forwards have been struggling to hit the back of the net on a consistent basis.
Chief scout Graham Carr is reported to be a big fan of the forward, who scored 14 goals in a 26 game loan spell with the Magpies in 2013/14, although the Tyneside club will come up against former boss Alan Pardew, who wants to bring him to Palace.
The Eagles are looking for a consistent goalscorer after their attacking struggles this term, whilst Aston Villa are also named as a keenly interested party.
Remy has also been offered to Swansea and Norwich, but there are no indications in the report that they have a concrete interest in the 29-year-old.
