Well, with just 30 minutes remaining of the transfer window, it looks as if Chelsea will be operating with just two recognised strikers this season as their offer for Marseille’s Loic Remy, is refused.

Marseille are said to want more than Chelsea’s offer of €19 million and blues officials are not in any mood to negotiate. It looks like the deal has stalled. I’d be surprised if we went back in with a higher offer now.

I’ve got nothing else transfer wise right now, but stay in touch for the final 30 minutes, anything can happen. Follow me hear for updates >> @chelseafctbos
