The former Espanyol manager fears losing out on the Frenchman to arch rivals Arsenal.
Tottenham Hotspur’s new boss Mauricio Pochettino is not confident of landing 27-year-old French striker Loic Remy, despite having made a concrete bid for him, reports Inside Futbol.
The Argentine boss wants Remy in his Spurs line up after the former Marseille hit-man netted an impressive 14 goals in 26 games for Newcastle United whilst on loan from QPR last season, but the France international favours a move to city rivals Arsenal instead.
The Gunners can give the Frenchman Champions League football that he so desperately desires to be part of once again, having missed out on the competition for the last couple seasons and Remy is therefore believed to be waiting for Arsene Wenger to make an offer for him.
This situation obviously does not please Pochettino, who recently took charge at Spurs and is keen to make an instant impact with new signings this summer.
Finding an able strike partner to Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor is foremost on Tottenham’s to-do list and it will be interesting to see which other striker their new boss lines up should Remy pull out of negotiations.
