Latest News: Chelsea Striker could be sold to Besiktas in the next few days

LOIC REMY has reached an agreement with Besiktas over a transfer away from Chelsea, according to reports.

Remy, 30, signed for the Blues in a £10.5million deal from Queens Park Rangers in 2014, but he has failed to make his mark at Stamford Bridge.

He spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace but injury scuppered his progress.

The France international has entered the final 12 months of his contract at Chelsea and Antonio Conte deems him surplus to requirements.

And Turkish outlet Sporx claim Besiktas have swooped for him with the club and the player striking a deal over a four-year contract.

It is said he will sign an initial three-year deal with an option to extend his stay by a further year.

Sporx also say a £1.8m offer has been tabled by the Turkish champions.

But Chelsea are yet to make a final decision on their proposal.

Besiktas are keen to bolster their ranks ahead of next season as they bid to maintain their dominance in Turkey as well as make their mark on the European stage.

They are lacking strength in depth up-front after Vincent Aboubakar and Demba Ba returned to their parent clubs.

And a move for Remy would help them fill the void.

Remy has made 32 appearances during his time at Chelsea and has scored eight goals.
