According to reports from Daily Mirror, Chelsea striker Loic Remy has been offered to 4 Premier League clubs.
Remy, 29, is being scouted by a host of clubs for past two months after struggling for first-team football this term.
Chelsea’s new interim manager Guus Hiddink also issued a clear warning as Aston Villa boss Remi Garde publicly expressed his interest to sign the France international.
However the Chronicle now suggests Aston Villa, Newcastle, Swansea and Norwich all four clubs have been sounded out about Remy.
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew is also interested on a reunion with his former striker.
Remy netted 14 goals under Pardew in his season-long loan spell at Newcastle during the 2013/14 campaign.
The Chelsea striker was interestingly left out of Hiddink’s 18-man squad for their 3-0 victory at Selhurst Park.
Reports say, Monaco also eyeing the struggling striker after failed to tempt Radamel Falcao, who they have loaned to Chelsea for the season, back to his parent club. Remy managed to play only eight Premier League matches this term, scoring just one goal.
Villa boss Garde last week publicly said Remy would become the “main man” at Villa Park but Chelsea boss hit out at him for being so disrespectful.
The Dutchman angrily reacted: “If you are interested, talk first to the people with whom they are contracted. You cannot go into details.”
Steve McClaren has also expressed his interest to bolster Newcastle’s attack.
“It seems in the last three games we’ve done the same,” he said after the 1-0 defeat at Arsenal
“I can’t fault the performances, but we need to be more ruthless in both boxes.”
Remy would eventually offer the Magpies a quick fix option atleast for the time being in the January transfer window as their consistent centre-forward problems were exposed yet again in the 1-0 loss to Arsenal. A loan deal for the Chelsea striker has been mooted.
Newcastle United’s goal-shy striker’s in the likes of Cisse, Ayoze Perez and Aleksandar Mitrovic have netted only 10 goals between them and the Magpies are gradually heading towards relegation unless they fix their offensive issues right now.
Norwich and Swansea are also in the race to avoid relegation.
