Four clubs are battling to sign out of favor Chelsea man Loic Remy, according to reports.

Apparently, Remy doesn’t have a future at Chelsea anymore and he is one of the few players the club is still looking to ship out before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

According to the Times via Football Insider, Four clubs are battling to sign the striker before Thursday’s deadline.

Newcastle, Stoke City, Swansea and West Brom are the four clubs that have expressed interest in signing the Frenchman.

Remy has struggled at Stamford Bridge, since completing a move from Newcastle but it appears he is still highly rated by clubs in the Premier League, most likely because of his exploits when he was at Newcastle.

Stoke And West Brom’s interest in the striker is a bit surprising, considering they have enough options in that  position already. Newcastle United have been in the market for a Premier League proven centre forward all summer and have explored signing Arsenal’s Lucas Perez but Remy represents a more realistic and cheaper option.

However, it is a move to Swansea that may favor Chelsea the most. Antonio Conte is interested in signing Fernando Llorente from the Welsh club and Remy could be used to sweeten the deal.

Galatasaray could make a move for Kieran Gibbs before the transfer window closes this week.

Gibbs has found himself out of Wenger’s plans and has been told to find a new club but he has been unsuccessful in doing that because of Arsenal’s valuation and also his reluctance to take a pay-cut.

Several clubs have been interested in Gibbs but Galatasaray could now make the race tougher by registering their Interest in the defender.

According to the Times via the Daily Cannon, the Turkish giants are only willing to pay up to £4m for the defender.

That is way short of Arsenal’s valuation for the defender. The Gunners rejected a £10m bid from West Brom last month, so it is impossible they will now accept Gala’s low-ball offer.

Leaving the Premier League may not even appeal to Gibbs who has been at Arsenal since he was 14.

A club that can’t even table a good offer will definitely not be able to meet the players financial demands, meaning it is almost impossible that Gibbs will be making a move to Turkey.

He is still expected to leave the Emirates before the transfer window closes next Thursday, with Watford Newcastle and West Brom still lurking around to sign him.

Newcastle: A club in turmoil

Newcastle

 

News is emerging today that Newcastle’s appointment of Joe Kinnear as their director of football was an effort to heal the divide between Newcastle United’s manager Alan Pardew and Chief Scout Graham Carr.

Newcastle fans and even former players have voiced their displeasure at the appointment of Kinnear especially following an interview he gave on British radio station Talksport, during which he mispronounced player’s names while also talking up how good he was, and who he had signed for the club that was totally false.

Also saying: “I am a very good judge of players, a very good tactician, everything to do with football I’ve been involved in and I’ve worked with the best,”

He even went on to say that he could call up and talk to any manager in English football whenever he wanted.

Even former star player Alan Shearer has called the 66-year-olds appointment a joke that is making his hometown club the laughing stock of football.

While writing in yesterday British tabloid newspaper the Sun the former Magpie striker said: “I promised myself years ago never to be surprised by what happens in football – particularly when it comes to Newcastle. But this situation really is stretching it a bit.

“While other clubs are all plotting and planning for next season, Newcastle have a manager who has just been totally undermined.

“Alan Pardew has said he will carry on but I am sure it will be a difficult situation,” he added. “As for that announcement, what are the players to think when he can’t even get their names right? It’s all a PR disaster.”

Manager Alan Pardew has not made a single comment since Kinnear’s arrival on Tyneside, but it would appear that his days may be numbered, and that with Kinnear at the club owner Mike Ashley new set of eyes and ears would be ready to take over the manager’s job should Pardew leave.

I do not think things will end well at Newcastle and that there are many changes to be made before Newcastle return to winning ways.

The Magpies first game of the season is away against Manchester City on August 17th, and I can tell you now my money will be on a City win.
