Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed his admiration of Marseille striker Loic Remy and Blackburn Rovers defender Chris Samba.

Spurs have regularly delved into the transfer market under Redknapp, who is keen to add to his title chasing squad.

His craving for a defender, with Ledley King and William Gallas currently on the sidelines, has led to links with the likes of Gary Cahill and Rovers' Samba.

"Samba's a good player. A real good player. I like the pair of them," he said.

In addition, Redknapp has also taken a fancy to French forward Remy, who has netted 10 times for the Ligue 1 side.

The 25-year-old moved from Nice to Marseille in 2010 for a reported €15 million after rejecting the advances of Stoke City.

Recent newspaper reports have suggested Spurs would require in excess of €22 million to snap up Remy, a player who has often been compared to Arsenal striker Thierry Henry.

"He's a good player," Redknapp added. "He's a player we like and there's interest there."
