Spurs ready to move for French international.
Read more Tottenham transfer news.
Tottenham Hotspur are readying an £11 million bid for French international Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers, report the Daily Star, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to beef up his attacking options at White Hart Lane.
Remy had been set for a move to Liverpool earlier in the summer before the deal collapsed in mysterious circumstances at the 11th hour, possibly due to an issue with the player’s medical.
QPR manager Harry Redknappy has dismissed any questions about Remy’s fitness, however, whilst he started during the Hoops’ opening day Premier League defeat against Hull City at Loftus Road.
Pochettino saw strikers Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane get on the scoresheet during their 2-1 Europa Victory against AEL Limassol on Thursday evening, but is looking for another body to compete with that duo and Emmanuel Adebayor for a place in the Spurs first team.
Spurs will have to stump up £2.5m more than the £8.5m fee that had been agreed by Liverpool, due to a clause in Remy’s Loftus Road contract that had allowed him to leave for a cut price fee to a team in the Champions League.
They may well see £12m as a solid investment on a player who seems to guarantee goals in the Premier League, however, after the former Marseille man enjoyed a fine 2013/14 season on loan at Newcastle United.
