Crystal Palace are weighing up a move for out-of-favour Chelsea striker Loic Remy as manager Alan Pardew eyes a summer reunion, according to reports.
Remy joined the Blues in August for a reported £10 million after a failed medical scuppered a switch to Liverpool earlier in the transfer window.
However, the 28-year-old has played second fiddle to Diego Costa all season long, with the in-form Spain international limiting his French counterpart to just three Premier League starts.
Consequently, the former QPR striker is growing frustrated with a shortage of first-team chances and Palace will offer an escape route, according to The Daily Star.
Pardew brought Remy to Newcastle United in a season-long loan which saw him net 14 goals in 26 Premier League outings last term.
The West Londoners may be tempted to sell but will not accept a loss on their initial £10m investment, meaning the Eagles will need to break their transfer record for the second time in a year.
Remy, who has five goals in all competitions this season, one less than third-choice forward Didier Drogba, is under contract until 2018.
