The Frenchman is set to leave Stamford Bridge after seeing his career go somewhat downhill. He’s likely to be too far down in Antonio Conte’s pecking order to really make an impact this season, and this has prompted him to seek pastures new.
Remy, who turned 30 at the start of the year, is a proven goalscorer but has struggled badly with injuries in recent times. He was sent out on loan to Crystal Palace last term but his fitness worries got the better of him.
The experienced forward was in pre-season action for Chelsea yesterday though, and netted twice as the Blues comprehensively saw Fulham off in an 8-2 win.
If Saints are to pursue Remy though, they will need to fend off competition from others. Everton and Marseille are both claimed by Sky Sports to be interested.
