It was back in 2010, when Tottenham scouted this promising player while he was consistently performing for OGC Nice at that time. 

After two years of regular assessment of the flamboyant Frenchman, Harry Redknapp's Spurs side registered a bid for him in the 2011/2012 January transfer window. 

Unfortunately, the bid was rejected by his employers at that time, Olympique Lyonnais, who needed their star striker in their crisis.

Days went fast forward to season 2012/2013, with Loic Remy signing for ambitious Queens Park Rangers, while Tottenham bolstered their striking options with Clint Dempsey and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

This season, Andre Villas-Boas's Tottenham are struggling to induct new quality strikers, missing out on many options like Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Christian Benteke, Leandro Damiao and many more. 

With Roberto Soldado's deal also not materialising with Valencia, Spurs must return to their past target for strengthening their strike force.

With Loic Remy seemingly unhappy at QPR after their disastrous relegation, and desperately in need to return to top-flight football with the World Cup fast approaching, it's a glorious chance for Spurs to prize him away before any other club starts a bidding war.

There is no question about how Remy will perform in the Premier League, as he showed his quality with QPR, scoring some vitals goals for the Hoops in their failed quest for survival.

Describe by Didier Deschamps, his former manager as "a young international who is fast and powerful with huge potential", he has an exquisite burning pace and will work in tandem with Jermain Defoe to great effect. 

Also good in the air, with a great leap and excellent timing, Remy has a good knack of scoring goals with his head, threatening the opposition with his aerial ability, which will add a deadly dimension to Tottenham's current forward line.

Blessed with a clinical right foot, Remy's all-round ability makes him an excellent forward, and as he showed with QPR that he can penetrate the defence and score on his own, Spurs' breathtaking passing will present more opportunities for him to thrive and play to his best.

With Tottenham desperately in need of a quality striker, Remy can be that golden boy for them, with his cultured technique and QPR's relegation, presenting a good chance of completing the signing.

His £8million release-clause is a relatively modest fee compared to the valuations of Tottenham's other striker targets this summer. Villas-Boas should consider the young Frenchman as a transfer priority, and sign him to bolster his deadly attack.
