Well, if Loïc Rémy is to leave Chelsea after just twelve short, but mostly successful months, it appears that he would have no shortage of options as far as choosing his next employer.  He's been repeatedly linked with his old Newcastle boss Alan Pardew, now at Crystal Palace, and now, according to the The Daily Mirror, another new suitor has emerged as well.

Loic Remy chase hots up as Swansea join Crystal Palace and Southampton in pursuit

So that's actually two new teams, though the rest of the Mirror's article has no mention of Southampton, making that an even more tenuous link than the Swans.

Incidentally, Rémy scored his first ever goal for Chelsea against Swansea City.  Are Garry Monk and Co. running a similar transfer policy to Chelsea?  Sign all the people who have scored against us?!

That being said, Swansea are definitely looking to sign a striker this summer after losing Wilfried Bony in January to Manchester City.  Bafetimbi Gomis is their only viable center forward at the moment, and while he did finish the season better than he started it, he certainly could use a bit of competition.  Could Rémy provide the perfect competition for the big man?  They could certainly do worse...
