Chelsea have accepted an £11.5million bid from Leicester City for their striker LoiC Remy, according to reports.
According to Metro and Daily Star, Chelsea have agreed to sell Remy after the Frenchman has failed to make any positive impact under new manager Guus Hiddink.
Earlier it was rumoured that Chelsea were keen on a cash+player deal with Remy and £15million for Jamie Vardy’s signing.
However, Leicester made it clear that they did not want to sell Vardy at this point of time, however, they kept Remy’s signing as a plausible option.
In the end, Remy convinced Chelsea to sell him as he was beginning to lose patience over the lack of playing time and given Euro 2016 being around the corner, the striker needed a regular playing time.
Leicester were keen on signing a striker, who could act as a proper backup to Jamie Vardy’s goal scoring. Remy has been a proven goal scorer with QPR and Newcastle and with his signature, Leicester could well have taken a huge step towards winning the Premier League title.
