Chelsea are considering a swap deal which would see Alexandre Lacazette arrive from Lyon and Loic Remy move in the opposite direction.

The French striker has scored 27 goals in Ligue 1 this season and has attracted the likes of many on-looking European sides, who have all enquired as to his current asking price, reportedly set at around £20m.
