Tottenham plotting surprise transfer raid for €12m Chelsea forward

Posted by

Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Chelsea striker Loic Remy, and are considering a loan move to bring the forward to White Hart Lane.

The Mirror report that Spurs are intent on signing cover for striker Harry Kane during the January window, particularly with frontman Clinton N’Jie-signed from Olympique Lyonnais during the summer-currently injured.

The report states that Tottenham have their sights set on Remy, and are understood to be plotting a loan move for the in-demand attacker.

Beyond Spurs, there has been no shortage of interested parties keen on the striker, with Ligue 1 side LOSC Lille recently confirming their interest, as per Goal, while another French side, AS Monaco, have also been linked with a move to bring the striker back home [L’Equipe via Le Figaro].

Tottenham may face Premier League competition from the likes of Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Aston Villa [according to the Daily Mail], and indeed Chelsea may prefer to offload the player to one of the division’s lower-ranked sides rather than their London rivals and fellow top-four contenders, Spurs. The Mirror’s Steve Bates admits this is the case, and has revealed that Spurs find it hard to see the Blues offloading the talented frontman to one of their rivals.

Turkish giants Galatasaray have reportedly made moves to sign the forward, and are understood to have sent representatives to London in order to ascertain Chelsea’s position [AMK]. According to the Turkish source, the Pensioners have slapped a €12m price tag on the international frontman, although it remains to be seen whether Spurs would be interested in a permanent deal, or whether their interest is exclusively concerning a potential loan move.
