West Ham enter negotiations for the transfer of Chelsea striker Loic Remy [France Football]

West Ham United have entered into talks with Loïc Rémy’s representatives, about a possible move to Upton Park.

France Football reports that new Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is a keen admirer of the French international and there is a genuine belief that the player can be convinced to move to East London.

It is understood that West Ham will speak to Chelsea in the next week regarding an £8 million move for their forward.

Loic Remy is thought to be considering his options after a frustrating season in which the striker played second fiddle to Spain’s Diego Costa for much of the season. Despite the forwards lack of appearances he still managed to score 9 goals for the West London club during the last campaign.

Chelsea would be reluctant to sell the 28 year old without bringing in reinforcements of their own upfront.

In recent days the club have been linked with Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani and Colombia’s all time record goalscorer Radamel Falcao, who endured a frustrating loan spell with Manchester United last season.
