Leicester City are not interested in signing Chelsea striker Loic Remy on loan, according to Sky Sports.

A number of English clubs reportedly want to sign the forward but the Premier League leaders aren’t among them.

Remy signed for Chelsea on transfer deadline day in the summer 2014 window, switching from Queens Park Rangers in a deal worth more than £10 million. But despite being an attacker of considerable class, Remy has found it difficult to command a place in the Blues’ starting eleven.

It didn’t help that he arrived in the same summer as Diego Costa, the big money signing from Atletico Madrid being a key player for Chelsea on their way to a Premier League title win.

Remy still managed to score nine goals that season and has chimed in with three in this campaign. While injuries haven’t helped, he’s viewed as a reserve by Guus Hiddink and co.

Having made only one league start all season, it’s understandable that the Frenchman would seek a move, especially with Euro 2016 around the corner. He hasn’t appeared for Les Bleus since 2014 but the right move could see Remy force his way into the reckoning. That move won’t be to Leicester, who are happy with their forward options.
