Loic Remy is set to leave Chelsea this summer with Premier League clubs Everton and Southampton interested in securing a deal, reports say.

The French striker has endured a difficult time at Stamford Bridge since joining Chelsea from Queens Park Rangers in 2014.

Due to lack of opportunities and a string of injuries, Remy has played just 32 league games in over three years and spent two weeks on loan at Crystal Palace last season before suffering a knee injury.

The 30-year-old is now pushing for a move in order to find regular game-time and will be allowed to leave when Chelsea sign a new centre forward.

Antonio Conte made Romelu Lukaku his top target earlier in the summer but the Belgian talisman opted to join Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
