Chelsea FC have gone ahead and strengthened an already strong squad by signing the France international Loic Remy. Remy has been playing in the Premier League for a while now and it is no surprise that Jose Mourinho would want to add the striker to his squad. Before Remy made his move to Chelsea, there was rumor of a move to Arsenal, but Chelsea ended up making an early move instead.

Remy has experience in the Premier League scoring 14 goals for Newcastle United last season after leaving Queen Park Rangers on loan. It seems that Mourinho wanted to have a striker in case his main talisman Diego Costa broke down with an injury. The main reason I think Mourinho made this move was to esure the squad had enough depth to compete on all fronts, especially after they recently agreed to let Fernando Torres leave and complete his move to AC Milan a couple of days ago.

Chelsea already has some of the best attacking talent in the Premier League. Remy’s addition is certain to make him achieve new heights in his career. The striker can play in multiple positions and his versatility will work in his favor. While Remy is considered to be in the peak of his career, there is still much room for improvement and with a coach like Mourinho there to guide, this may just end up being the bargain buy of the season.

Remy has left a lot behind but I think moving to Chelsea was the best thing for his career. It was time that he made amends for the inconsistent display that he was sometimes known for during his time in Newcastle and QPR. With such a strong team as the one Chelsea has put together, there is no reason for a player such as Remy to perform below par.
