Chelsea are willing to let Loic Remy leave the club this summer, but want at least £15m($23.76) for his services, according to the Telegraph.
The striker is hesitant about his future at the club, with Radamel Falcao being linked with a move to Chelsea. The Monaco striker failed to live up to expectations last season but is hopeful of a move to Chelsea and hinted that he will reveal details about a prospective move after the Copa America.
Remy has made six Premier League starts last season, scoring seven times in the process, but would consider a move if he is not an integral part of the squad in the coming season. Crystal Palace are believed to be interested in signing Remy but are unwilling to pay the reported fee.
Chelsea are reported to be unwilling to let the player leave for anything less than the reported fee as they believe that the Frenchman has proved that he is among the best forwards in the league with his contribution last season.
The 28-year-old is also on a massive £80,000($126,736)-a-week wage bill at Stamford Bridge, which can also act as a deterrent for clubs out of the top half of the table.
Mourinho is willing to keep Remy at Stamford Bridge as understudy to Falcao and Diego Costa with both players susceptible to injuries. This was evident in the latter half of the last season when the Blues were reduced to their bare bones with both strikers nursing injuries.
Meanwhile, Mourinho is looking to add a couple of players to the squad to increase competition in midfield and defence. The Blues have been indomitable in the league last season but face losing out on Filipe Luis, who wants to leave the club in search of more game time, having managed only nine appearances in the league last season.
Chelsea have earmarked Abdul Baba Rahman as the man to replace the Brazilian, with the Blues keeping a keen eye on him after a productive season with Augsburg.
