Loïc Rémy (born 2 January 1987) is a French footballer who plays for French club Marseille in Ligue 1. Rémy primarily plays in the lead striker role, but also operates on the wings and as a second striker. Rémy is described by his manager Didier Deschamps as "a young international who is fast and powerful with huge potential".

Born in in Rillieux-la-Pape, Rhône, Rémy began his career playing for a local youth club in his home city of Lyon. In 1999, he joined the biggest club in the city, Olympique Lyonnais, and spent six years in the club's 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. The transfer had initially been put on hold due to medical issues.

Rémy is a former France under-20 and under-21 international. He currently plays for the senior team having earned his first cap on in June 2009 against Nigeria under the Raymond Domenech reign. Rémy scored his first goal for the national team in October 2010 against Romania under new manager Laurent Blanc.
