Spartak Moscow edge closer to deal for Chelsea striker Remy

Russian club Spartak Moscow are set to sign Chelsea's Loic Remy.

Russian publication Vesti suggests that the French striker will join Spartak for a fee of around £7.6million.

Remy has been linked with a Stamford Bridge departure for some time now and it is believed that he will finally get his wish and depart West London for regular first team football.

The 29-year-old joined Chelsea from QPR in the summer of 2014 after a successful loan spell at Newcastle United.

This season, Remy has started just once in the Premier League and is likely to be offloaded once the reigning Premier League champions seal a deal for Corinthians forward Alexandre Pato.
