Chelsea has now completed a deal to sign veteran striker Loic Remy from QPR.
The deal was finalised today.
The France international striker has put pen to paper on a deal until the summer of 2018, after Chelsea activated a £10.5million release clause in the 27-year-old's contract.
Remy joined QPR from Marseille in January 2013, scoring six goals in 14 games, as Rangers were relegated from the Premier League.
He then spent the 2013/14 campaign on loan at Newcastle United, where he scored 14 goals.
Remy, who had also been linked with Arsenal, told Chelsea's official website: "I feel very happy and very proud.
"When I heard Chelsea wanted to sign me I said "let's go" straight away because they are one of the best clubs in the world.
"I remember the amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge when I played there for Marseille and I can't wait to play for the first time in front of my new fans."
Remy came through French side Lyon's youth academy and made his first-team debut for his home-town club in 2006, playing for them during two Ligue 1 title-winning seasons, as well as in the Champions League
