Liverpool set to hijack Hammers move for French kid

Published Add your comment

Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly set to hijack West Ham’s move to sign Nice striker Loic Remy, according to reports.

The French youngster has been heavily linked with a switch to the Hammers after making known his intentions to move to the Premier League.

He had previously wanted to join Arsenal but their lack of interest led to him announcing his desire to move to East London.

Avram Grant, who has also reportedly added Frederic Piquionne to his Upton Park squad, has already had a series of offers turned down for the forward, dubbed ‘the next Thierry Henry’.

With West Ham’s failure to agree a fee, The Mirror is reporting that Roy Hodgson is set to swoop and bring Remy to Anfield – and he could confirm the signing within the next week.

The new Liverpool boss does not have much money to spend but, with rumours Fernando Torres is off to Chelsea, he will want to snap up a replacement and Liverpool’s American owners would be willing to sanction the £12 million deal.

Harry Redknapp would like to add Remy to his Spurs squad, with the added bonus of offering Champions League football, but will have to sell first in order to raise some cash.
