The Blues are still awaiting
confirmation regarding the severity
of Drogba’s ankle knock, sustained
during the club’s 2-1 friendly victory
against Ferencvaros on Sunday, and
are keeping their options open.
Remy had been set for an 10
million-euro transfer to Liverpool
earlier this summer before the move
broke down amid reports of a failed
medical.
He had attracted interest from
Tottenham and Arsenal prior to the
Reds making their move, and now
Chelsea has entered the frame in the
wake of Drogba’s setback.
The Ivorian could miss the start of
the Premier League season, with the
Blues kicking off against Burnley
next Monday.
Jose Mourinho had declared his
summer spending over in mid-July,
with Diego Costa brought in from
Atletico Madrid to bolster the club’s
forward line, but then clinched
the signing of Drogba on a one-year
deal.
And Mourinho may be forced back
into the market to secure another
striking option with the severity of
Drogba’s knock still to be
determined.
Remy, 27, has been back in training
with QPR and Hoops boss Harry
Redknapp hopes he will be fit to
face Hull City on Saturday.
“He’s here, he wants to work and
get in the team,” he said. “He’s
worked really hard on the training
ground, I couldn’t have asked for
any more from him. He’s trained
great and his attitude’s been first
class.
“Hopefully with a week’s training
he’ll be fit to play next week.”
