Premier League hotshot keeping his options open.

Check in to France vs Honduras

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy, although he is waiting till after the World Cup to sign a deal as he hopes Arsenal will declare their interest in him, reports

The France international will be on duty with his national team in Brazil this summer and he will not make a decision on his future until he returns from South America. This could rile Spurs who appear to have agreed terms with the 27-year-old, but he is keen to keep his options open.

Remy has enjoyed a strike rate of exactly one in every two games since arriving in the Premier League with QPR and then playing for Newcastle last season. It is this record of 20 goals in 40 appearances that has attracted the attention of both Spurs and potentially Arsenal.

The forward was in attendance at Arsenal’s final home game of last season, fuelling rumours that he was close to signing for the Gunners, although no deal has been reached.

He has a release clause in his contract at QPR of just £9 million so the fee would not be much of a problem for any Premier League side. There is little doubt that he will be performing in the top flight of English football again next season, it is just a question of which club he will be with.
