Magpies chase Remy, Lampard wants contract extension and Chelsea close on Moses
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew appears to have lost patience with the protracted pursuit of Andy Carroll and switched his attention to Marseille's French international Loic Remy, according to the Daily Star.
Liverpool's £20m asking price for Carroll has put the Magpies off any potential deal, while Remy, who is entering the final year of his contract, is available for around £12m-15m.
The 25-year-old has scored 27 goals in 60 games during his two years at Marseille and has attracted the attention of several clubs because of his versatility up front.
If he made the move, Remy would be the next in a long line of Ligue 1 coups for the Tyneside club.
One player desperate not to move is Chelsea's Frank Lampard.
The 34-year-old is entering the final year of his contract, while some heavy spending by the Blues this summer could herald the beginning of the end for a number of the Stamford Bridge old guard.
However, Lampard, who scored a noteworthy 43 fantasy football points in just 25 games last season, is looking beyond his last year and wants to extend his current deal.
"I'm ready to sit down and talk to Chelsea whenever they want to," he told the Daily Mail.
"I certainly feel I've got more than a year left in me. I feel I've got a few more years in terms of top football."
Meanwhile, Chelsea have expressed their continued interest in signing Wigan's want-away midfielder Victor Moses, the Evening Standard reports.
Moses scored 28 fantasy football points in 37 games in a breakthrough season and the Latics are now being forced to cash in on the player as he enters the final 12 months of his contract.
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan wants at least £10m for his star asset, while Chelsea's latest bid is £9m, a huge jump from the initial £4m bid a month ago which Whelan slammed as "taking the mickey."
