Loic Remy is set to leave Chelsea this summer with Marseille and Everton interested in signing the forward, Sky sources understand.

The Frenchman will fly to China this week for the club's pre-season tour of the Far East but will be allowed to leave the club if they sign a new centre forward.

Remy would like to stay at the Premier League champions but realises he will have limited first-team opportunities this season, according to Sky sources.

The former QPR and Newcastle forward, who has 12 months left on his contract, scored twice on Saturday in Chelsea's 8-2 win over Fulham in a friendly at their Cobham training ground.

Chelsea signed the striker for £10m from QPR in 2014 but injuries have seen him restricted to only 32 Premier League appearances.
