Lyon eye Chelsea striker Remy as contingency for Arsenal target Lacazette

French club Olympique Lyon are believed to be keen on Chelsea's Loic Remy.

The Daily Mail reports that Lyon have enquired about a loan deal for the French striker who is down the pecking order under Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Lyon are only eyeing Remy, 29, as a potential replacement for star attacker Alexandre Lacazette who could still be the subject of a late bid from Arsenal.

After scoring a hat-trick against Nancy on Sunday, Lacazette said he was happy at the Satde de Gerland and wanted to remain with Lyon but the Ligue 1 outfit are still bracing for a big-money offer from the Gunners and have an offer of a temporary stint for Remy on standby just in case.
