Las Palmas in for Chelsea’s Remy

Las Palmas have joined Cagliari as the frontrunners to sign out-of-favour Chelsea striker Loic Remy, say reports in Spain.

Marca follow up on reports in England which suggest the 30-year-old will leave Stamford Bridge this week and Los Amarillos are keen on a move.

The French international has started only nine Premier League games for Chelsea in three years since signing from Queen’s Park Rangers and spent an unsuccessful loan stint at Crystal Palace last season.

The Lyon-native has failed to find regular first-team football since netting 14 league goals in 24 starts for Newcastle in the 2013/14 season and now looks set to exit England.

Strong reports had linked him to Serie A club Cagliari but on Friday, Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez admitted on Radio Marca the club were hopeful of adding further attacking additions.

AEK Athens are said to be hopeful on a deal to re-sign Sergio Araujo from the Gran Canarian club.
