“I want to go. I really hope there can be an agreement before the end of the month. I am interested in England, but there is also a club in France in for me.

Tottenham need to act fast if they want to land French striker Loic Remy, as other clubs look set to pounce. West Ham and Liverpool both hold an interest, as do an un-named french club, thought to be Lyon.

The player has drawn comparisons with the great Thierry Henry and with Harry Redknapp publicly stating his wish to sign a new striker for the new season, Remy certainly fits the bill.

Stoke had a bid accepted for the talented forward, but he has made it clear that whilst wishing to play in England, he would prefer to hold out for Champions League football.

His current club Nice are thought to be demanding around £14.3million for his services, but they may well accept a bid in the region of £10-12million. With Redknapp becoming increasingly frustrated at the state of the current transfer market, the signing of Remy could give him and Tottenham a much-needed boost.
