It has now been confirmed that champions of Turkey, Besiktas have reignited their interest in signing Chelsea underused striker Loic Remy, as per a report from Lig Tv. The Black Eagles had previously seen one of their earlier loan bids turned down by the Blues, as they looked to sell the Frenchman on a permanent basis, with new manager Antonio Conte taking over at Stamford Bridge.
The Istanbul based outfit have now made an enquiry, as they look to sign the former Newcastle United man with the west London outfit looking to cash in on the striker themselves.
Remy will once again fall further down the pecking order if the former Premier League champs sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, which would mean that he would no future under the former Juventus boss.
Besiktas on the other hand can offer Remy Champions League and first regular first team football in the upcoming campaign, if he agrees to move.
The Eagles are looking for a some options to replace German international Mario Gomez, after the 31 year old Fiorentina man revealed that he would not be returning to the club for next term.
Gomez was on loan with Besiktas since last summer, as he left the Serie A side. However, despite ending the campaign as the club’s top scorer and helping them win the league title, he has now decided to move back to Italy.
The experienced attacker who scored twice at the Euro 2016 tournament in France, helped Joachim Low’s side reach the semi-finals of the competition, though he missed out playing due to an injury.
Remy will have some big shoes to fill in Turkey, though his experience across Ligue 1 and the top flight of English football could surely help his cause.
