Forgotten Chelsea striker Loic Remy is still available for transfer providing that the club bring in attacking reinforcements in the coming weeks according to Sky Sports sources.

The 30-year-old former French international hotshot has not featured for The Blues under new manager Antonio Conte and was shipped out on loan to Chelsea’s English Premier League rivals Crystal Palace last season.

Remy has now returned to Stamford Bridge and the player scored a double in a surprise appearance in a first team pre-season friendly against Fulham at the club’s Cobham training ground on Saturday afternoon. Chelsea won that match 8-2 and it had been thought that Remy may still have a future at the club however latest reports indicate that the striker continues to be available for transfer.

With Chelsea currently short of attacking talent as a result of a frustrating summer transfer window, Remy will be on the plane when the club travel to Asia for their pre-season tour on Monday however it is believed that the frontman will leave the squad should they receive a suitable transfer offer for his services or if The Blues make any new additions to their striking department.

Since joining Chelsea from QPR in August 2014, Remy has hit 12 goals in 47 appearances for the club. His last Chelsea goal in a competitive fixture came in a 2-1 defeat at Leicester City in December 2015.
