It does not seem like other clubs are queueing up to sign him. We might end up keeping hima nd that might not even be the worst thing in the world. Even if we sign another striker we would need 3 to have enough cover. Beign short of strikers is almost as being short of goalkeepers as their skillset is arguably similarly unique. Remy is experienced, still pretty quick, still in the best age. Not a game changer but someone who goes with the flow of the team. Will score his fair share of goals if given the chance and staying injury free.

I'm not sure that we can keep him. We can name 16 non-homegrown players in the Premier League:


GK: Eduardo, Caballero, Courtois

DEF: Azpi, Luiz, Rüdiger, Alonso

MID: Kanté, Bakayoko, Willian, Hazard, Pedro,

FW: Batshuayi

 

This is 13.

I didn't count Matic and Costa bc they are likely to leave.

We'll have to bring one striker(Morata, Auba, Belotti), so it's 14. Some wingbacks(Alex Sandro and Danilo) are also rumoured to join us. If Pasalic stays he'd take one non-hg place too, if we offload him we'll have to buy another DM. So we can reach 16 quickly. I don't think we'll spend one spot on Rémy.

 

(by the way, I think it's ridiculous that we have a non-hg thrid choice keeper, such a waste)

we will not register Eduardo and use the emergency rule to swap him in in case we need him. Also don't we have 17 non hg-spots?

Yes, it's 17, my bad.

I don't know about Eduardo, last year he was named but last year our 2nd choice was homegrown(Begovic).

I'd love to have Rémy in the squad but if we sign 2-3 new players we can run out of hg-spots.

 

According to Sky, Loic will be free to leave at the moment we sign a new striker.

He was a good striker, really fast as well. I'm sad that he got injured so often and didn't know the offside rule.

and once again we sld a player without really securing a replacement. Even if we play false 9 when both Bats and Morata are out, it is still an not so cool solution with all of our only 3 senior wingers playing.

This is not american football with squads of fifthysomething. 

If Suarez and Alcacer are injured Barca have no strikers. Each Bayern and Real only have one real striker(Lewa and Benzema). Who do City play with when Agüero and Gabi Jesus are both injured? You cant count with that.

Like he was ever going to play. Plus he was pretty useless post 2015 title, i know we were in a shit situation under Jose but thing's got better under Guus but he got even worse. And at Palace he looked awful with the few chances he got and never got a look in again.

False 9 is 100x a better option than playing Remy in 2017 if it came to one or the other, if there is one that got away in the striker department it's Traore.
