Loïc Rémy (born 2 January 1987) is a French professional footballer who plays for English club Crystal Palace, on loan from Chelsea, and the France national team, primarily as a forward. He was described by his former manager Didier Deschamps as "a young international who is fast and powerful with huge potential". He was sent out on loan to Crystal Palace on 30 August 2016 but returned almost immediately on 10 September 2016 to Chelsea after sustaining an ankle injury.

Born in Rillieux-la-Pape, Rhône, Rémy began his career playing for a local youth club in his home city of Lyon, before joining the biggest club in the city, Olympique Lyonnais, joining their youth academy. In 2005, he was promoted to the senior team and struggled to establish himself in three seasons under managers Gérard Houllier and Alain Perrin. In 2008, he was loaned out to RC Lens and, after a successful stint, was purchased by OGC Nice ahead of the 2008–09 season. With Nice, Rémy flourished in the lead striker role scoring over 25 goals in his two years with the club. In 2010, after enduring interest from several clubs domestically and abroad, Rémy joined the defending champions Marseille on a five-year contract. He moved abroad for the first time to join Queens Park Rangers in January 2013, but could not prevent their relegation. The following season he remained in the Premier League on loan at Newcastle United. In the summer of 2014, Rémy signed for Chelsea for a reported £10.5 million, where he won the League Cup and Premier League in his first season.

Rémy is a former France under-20 and under-21 international. He earned his first cap for the senior team in June 2009 against Nigeria and played at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
