Newcastle United could make a fresh assault on former striker Loic Remy, The Chronicle has learned.
The Magpies’ scoring problems have been well documented, with summer recruit Aleksandar Mitrovic still firing blanks, and considering that Papiss Cisse is set for a month-long spell on the sidelines, manager Steve McClaren has no choice but to recruit a quality centre forward in January.
According to The Chronicle, Newcastle United have been offered a chance to sign Loic Remy on loan until the end of the season.
That seems like a perfect scenario for the Magpies considering that the Frenchman is eager to prove his worth after struggling at Stamford Bridge, while he is obviously well acquainted with the St James’ Park outfit, having bagged 14 goals in 26 Premier League outings during a loan spell with the Magpies under Alan Pardew.
The only problem is that the current Crystal Palace manager wants to be reunited with Remy at Selhurst Park, so it looks like the 29-year-old has a decision to make.
