Chelsea striker Loic Remy has denied that he plans to leave the Premier League champions this summer, despite struggling for game-time during the last campaign, the Daily Express report.
The Express suggest that the Frenchman had been attracting the interest of Crystal Palace this summer, but he appeared to quash their hopes of landing his signature by suggesting that he wants to fight for his place.
“I am flattered by other teams wanting me, but I have never wanted to leave this club because I feel really good here,” he explained.
Despite the presence of Blues legend Didier Drogba, the 28-year-old seemed to be considered as Jose Mourinho’s first choice back-up, should anything happen to Diego Costa. While Drogba’s now moved on, the arrival of Radamel Falcao could lessen his chances of first-team football even further.
Although the Colombian endured a torrid time during a loan spell with Manchester United last season, Jose Mourinho is confident that he can get the best out of the formerly formidable forward (via Daily Mail), which suggests that Remy is set to become third-choice.
Should that be the case, and become obvious before the end of the window, the former Queens Park Rangers man may decide to seek a move away, or he could face being given a permanent seat on the bench.
