English Premier League outfit Everton have enquired about the availability of Marseille striker Loic Remy, according to Mercato365.fr.
The France international hitman is expected to be one of the most in-demand players during next month’s transfer window, with Marseille willing to accept a reasonable price for his services.
Remy has struggled to reproduce his usual goalscoring form for the Stade Velodrome outfit this season and, with Andre-Pierre Gignac finally finding the back of the net on a regular basis, Marseille believe they can cope without Remy.
The French giants are still keen to cut their budget cloth accordingly and, though president Vincent Labrune has indicated that the 25-year-old is valued at between €12M and €15M, it is thought a lower figure of between €8M and €10M should be enough to bag his signature.
Everton boss David Moyes is thought to be on the lookout for an extra striker to help the Toffees sustain their European push in the Premier League.
However, Moyes may face opposition for Remy’s signature.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp was a consistent fan of Remy when in charge at Tottenham Hotspur and has taken that admiration with him to Loftus Road.
Meanwhile a Chelsea talent spotter also recently admitted that the Blues are keeping tabs on Remy’s progress on France’s south coast.
