Chelsea 29-year-old in line for shock China move this month
By Chelsea correspondent Tony Hughes
Loic Remy could follow the stampede to the mega-rich Chinese Super League this month.
Football Insider sources understand the 29-year-old Chelsea striker is a target of newly promoted Hebei Fortune.
Remy came close to a permanent transfer to Leicester in the recently-shut January window but talks collapsed on deadline day.
The China window is open until 26 February and provides a fresh opportunity for elite players who have fallen down the pecking order at their clubs.
Ramires, Gervinho, Freddy Guarin and Jackson Martinez are set to be joined in the Chinese league by Liverpool January target Alex Teixeira, who is poised to join in a £38million deal.

Hebei Fortune signed former Arsenal winger Gervinho in the January window in a deal worth around £12million.
Rémy has scored a creditable 12 goals goals in 43 appearances for the Blues, many of which have been from the substitutes’ bench, but has not been given the opportunity to replicate the form which saw him strike 14 times while at Newcastle two seasons ago.
