Loic who’s talking

According to TBW, we’re sniffing around Marseille striker Loic Remy, a player who notched 20 goals at just under a goal every two games in Ligue 1 last season.

With Leon O’Best and Peter Lovenkrands already departed, and the Lone Ranger’s prospects of a first-team return looking slimmer than a supermodel with an eating disorder, we’re effectively down to Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba and Big Lad as our striking options for the forthcoming season. With Ba’s contractual release clause still operative until the end of July, we’re a week away from potentially being reduced to two recognised strikers, which makes sense of our interest in Remy (particularly if he’s cheaper than re-signing Rocky from Liverpool).

With Lille lining up a right-back replacement for Matthieu Debuchy, a pre-requisite before they sanction his transfer, it could be that we also see some progress on that transfer shortly.

Also worth noting is the impending arrival of Australian defender Curtis Good from Melbourne Heart FC to bolster our ranks as our global recruitment drive continues.
