Spurs plot player-plus-cash striker deal


Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is lining up a player-plus-cash deal for Marseille striker Loic Remy.

According to the Daily Mirror, French radio station RMC Sports claim that Spurs have made contact with the Ligue 1 outfit, with a view to striking a January deal.

The move will see want-away striker Roman Pavlyuchenko move in the opposite direction, as Harry Redknapp looks for immediate reinforcements to replenish his striker options at White Hart Lane.

With seven goals already to his name this season, Marseille boss Didier Deschamps is determined to keep hold of Remy, but has indicated he would be willing to include fellow Frenchman Andre-Pierre Gignac in any potential deal.

However, Tottenham are not interested in Gignac, as a club already blessed with a top-quality strikeforce including Rafael van der Vaart, Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe.

Remy is a quick striker who would bring additional pace to Spurs' forward line, and after scoring for Marseille in their UEFA Champions League win at Borussia Dortmund last night - he has already showcased what he would bring to Redknapp's side.
