Tottenham are ready to step up their pursuit of Marseille forward Loic Remy, according to The Sun.

 

Spurs have courted Remy for some time and had a sizeable bid turned down by Marseille in January, however they look set to go back in for the French international now that the season is over.

 

Tottenham’s pursuit of the 25-year-old could be hindered however by the fact he picked up an adductor injury in Marseille’s game against Auxerre on Sunday, putting his participation in Euro 2012 in doubt.

 

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has previously travelled to France to watch Remy in action while also publicly admitting he was a fan of the striker’s abilities.

 

Remy is expected to be out for a month with the injury, and while his absence from the tournament means his price tag, rumoured to be around £16 million, will not sky rocket, it could add to his sense of ‘unfulfilled duty” with the Ligue 1 club.

 

Speaking in La Provence last week, he said: "I already said I am not ready to leave for the moment"

 

"There are offers, in England especially, but I do not feel I have had a complete season for Marseille and have a sense of unfulfilled duty."

 

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Remy in the past, however their interest is far from concrete.
