Wolverhampton Wanderers are understood to have made an offer to take unwanted Chelsea striker Loic Remy on loan prior to the closure of the summer transfer window according to the Express & Star.

The 30-year-old French frontman had been deemed to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge after failing to impress Blues manager Antonio Conte following his arrival at the club last summer.

It has been reported that Wolves made an approach to take the player on loan for the remainder of the season however a deal did not materialise and Remy eventually joined Spanish top flight club Las Palmas on a permanent deal on Friday after being released from his contract by Chelsea.

Remy spent three years with Chelsea after joining the club from local rivals Queens Park Rangers in a reported £10.5 million deal in August 2014. The player netted nine goals in 27 matches in his first season at Stamford Bridge as The Blues went on to lift the English Premier League title and EFL Cup but Remy’s career with the West London club fizzled out in his second and third years with Chelsea.

As well as their interest in Remy, it is also thought that Wolves tried to sign Derby County striker Chris Martin and Watford’s Stefano Okaka without success.
