Premier League Striker to Join Jamie Vardy Up Top?

Leicester City have reportedly had an £11.5 million bid accepted for Chelsea striker Loic Remy according to The Independent. The French international has had a tough time at Chelsea being second best to Diego Costa and usually finding himself on the bench. 

Already being a proven striker at Newcastle and QPR in the Premier League, Leicester City are certainly getting a trustworthy striker. With Jamie Vardy having the season of his life, things can only get better for Claudio Ranieri and his title charging squad.

Let us know what you think. Is this smart business by Ranieri?

Liverpool Dealt Blow In Hunt For Attacker

The Liverpool Echo is reporting that Liverpool's hopes of signing Brazilian forward Alex Teixeira have taken a hit after the Shakhtar chief executive told Liverpool to forget about signing him.

It has been widely reported that Liverpool have weighed in with two bids so far, however both of those have been lower than Shakhtar would like for their main man.

It was initially thought that Shakhtar were resigned to losing the frontman, however it is now thought they wish to keep him until the end of the season at least. 

It has been reported that Shakhtar wanted around £36m for the Brazilian star, but chief executive Sergei Palkin has now claim that Teixeira's release clause is in fact much higher.

This story has evolved into one of the sagas of the January transfer window, the question is - will Jurgen Klopp eventually get his man? Let us know!

Chelsea Defender Faces Surprise Exit

The London Evening Standard are reporting that Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is wanted by Serie A side, Roma.

Amid the crisis at Chelsea, Cahill's place in the starting eleven has come under scrutiny leading to him starting just 5 games in the last 2 months. After an imperious campaign last time out, Cahill is now worried that a lack of football will cost him his place in the England squad at the upcoming Euro's in the Summer.

Roma recently shipped out Gervinho to Chinese side Hebei China Fortune and are looking to reinvest that cash instantly with Cahill rumoured to be a top target.

Chelsea's deal to sign Matt Miazga will hardly have helped to reassure Cahill of his place in the team. 

Chelsea fans, do you want Cahill to stick around? Let us know!

City, United and Chelsea To Miss Out On World Class Striker?

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all look to be missing out on Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski. The striker is set to put off a move to any of the English clubs to wait for Real Madrid's transfer ban to be lifted in the summer according to the Independent.

17 goals in 17 games this season explains the high amount of interest Lewandowski has gained. Real have clearly put 2013 behind them when he scored 4 goals against the Spanish side to reach the final of the Champions League.

Is Gary Neville Right About The Premier League?

It's no secret that the Premier League is the wealthiest in world football. Buying foreign stars for large amounts of money has become a ritual. From teenagers with blistering futures to players at the peak of their powers, England has become accustom to spending big money. 

Sky Sports pundit and now Valencia boss Gary Neville recently spoke about the problems with English football when covering a match between West Ham and Newcastle. 

He highlighted that 'we (being the English league) are funding the rest of Europe...' and he's not wrong. 

Examples that he spoke about consist of Anthony Martial for £36 million and Roberto Firmino for £20 million in which their previous clubs stated it was huge amounts of money.

He goes on to mention how 'we are a bank' simply due to the amount of money the Premier League has.

Do you agree with him? Let us know!

Chelsea After Striker Swap Deal

The Daily Mirror are reporting that Chelsea are interested in Leicester City's Jamie Vardy and are prepared to offer Loic Remy as a part exchange.

The paper claims that Chelsea's interest in Vardy stems from Leicester's own interest in Remy, citing their £7.6m bid for the Frenchman as evidence. Chelsea are looking to use this interest to make a deal for Jamie Vardy.

However, Leicester have apparently maintained a strong stance and are thought to not be letting Vardy go this transfer window.

This leaves the Remy deal in tatters and it seems Leicester will have to look elsewhere if they want to bolster their attacking options. 

Would Jamie Vardy get in the Chelsea team? What do you think?
