Loic Remy confirms he spoke to former Benevento player Bacary Sagna before accepting the transfer. ‘I can’t wait for this new challenge.’
The 33-year-old forward landed in Italy this evening, just hours before his new team secured their promotion into Serie A with a record 76 points in 31 Serie B games.
“It’s the best choice for me and we’ll see what happens, I have to do the medical, see the staff and then we’ll see everyone,” Remy told Sky Sport Italia at the airport.
He’ll be a free agent after his contract with Lille ran down and is expected to sign a three-year deal.
Remy revealed he asked former Benevento player Sagna for some advice, as he played here from February to August 2018.
“I spoke to Sagna to get some information on the city, the club and the atmosphere. He gave me some good feedback, I am really happy to be here and can’t wait to discover this new country, this new challenge.”
