In-demand Remy won’t be rushed

The Nice ace is one of the most sought-after players in this

summer’s transfer window after attracting interest from a host of

clubs across Europe. West Ham and Liverpool have both expressed an

interest in the 23-year-old while Stoke held talks with Remy and

showed him around their training ground on Thursday. Up to eight

clubs are thought to be chasing Remy’s signature with the player

deciding to visit Stoke’s training ground after Potters boss Tony

Pulis and assistant manager Dave Kemp flew out to see him in France

earlier this week. Remy’s agent, Frederic Guerra, admits the player

was impressed by Stoke’s desire to sign him, but that he was in no

rush to decide what club he wants to move to. “Loic is a polite

person and after Tony Pulis and Dave Kemp came to see him in

France, he felt it was right to come and look at Stoke,” Guerra

told skysports.com. “Loic did not know much about Stoke, but he was

very impressed by what Tony and Dave had to say to him. “He was

also impressed by Stoke’s training ground and he was amazed by the

enthusiasm of the club’s fans after arriving there. “Loic is

thankful for Stoke for showing an interest in him and he wishes

them all the best for the future. “However, Loic is in no rush to

make a decision on his future. “There are eight clubs – four in the

UK – who are all chasing Loic and he will take his time before

deciding what is the best move for him.”
