Spurs prepare £16m bid for France star

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are ready to launch a £16 million bid to secure the services of Loic Remy this summer – with the north London club increasingly confident of getting their man, reports Le Parisien.

Tottenham reportedly had a bid of around £20 million turned down for Remy, who is absent from Euro 2012 because of injury, in January as they look to bolster their front line ahead of another charge for Champions League football next season.

Marseille were reportedly holding out for more but now find themselves needing to sell off their most prized assets in order to secure their financial future, something Spurs are hoping to capitalise on.

French newspaper Le Perisien reports that Marseille will welcome a bid from Spurs ,which they expect to arrive next week, and could agree on a fee not much higher than their original offer.

According to the paper, Marseille are likely to reject Tottenham’s initial bid but are willing to let Remy leave for around £17.5 million, a figure which would represent a £4 million profit on the £12 million they paid Nice for the 25-year-old when the 25 percent of the transfer fee his former club will receive is taken into consideration.

Elsewhere, talks with Emmanuel Adebayor over making his loan move to White Hart Lane permanent are said to be on-going, with Manchester City believed to willing to accept a cut price offer of around £10 million, reports the Mirror.
