According to the Daily Mail, the latest club who have shown interest in Loïc Rémy are newly promoted La Liga outfit Las Palmas, who join a handful of other clubs from around Europe — including most recently, Cagliari — in potentially taking on the 30-year-old Chelsea forward, either on loan or, as expected, in a permanent transfer.

Two of the more intriguing clubs linked also include Newcastle, where Rémy used to play and who are likely to be stiffed by Chelsea on the Kenedy loan and Swansea City, who are potentially looking for a body to replace Fernando Llorente, whom Chelsea are looking to sign. We could scratch our own backs with in that latter case!

Since 2015, Rémy has only played 898 minutes for Chelsea and Crystal Palace combined — the latter on loan — largely due to injury and fitness issues. If he manages to overcome these issues, he could certainly be a useful player in any European league, having already proven himself to be a good goalscorer in both Ligue 1 and the Premier League.
