Tottenham are confident of beating Arsenal to the signature of Loic Remy this summer, and are ready to table an £8 million bid for the want-away Queens Park Rangers striker.

The France international spent the 2013/14 campaign on loan at Newcastle United, and has no desire to remain at Loftus Road next season despite QPR's return to the Premier League.

Remy currently earns £75,000-a-week with Harry Redknapp's side and the Daily Mirror reports that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to offer him an improvement on those terms at White Hart Lane.

Spurs striker options

Mauricio Pochettino is eager to reinforce his attacking options at Tottenham, and has set his sights on a move for the long-term Arsenal target.

Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor are both expected to remain part of the senior squad, but Remy's arrival would almost certainly push both of them down the first-team pecking order.

Arsenal interest

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has also been credited with an interest in bringing the 27-year-old to the Emirates Stadium as he looks to ease the goalscoring burden on Olivier Giroud in 2014/15.

Arsenal can offer Remy Champions League football, but are unwilling to guarantee the Frenchman that he will be their first-choice striker - something that Pochettino and Spurs are able to do.

Player-swap deal?

The fact that Tottenham are also happy to pay the player a better wage than what would be on offer at Arsenal means that they are now clear favourites to secure his services this summer.

Former Spurs boss Redknapp is also understood to be keen on signing Gylfi Sigurdsson and Kyle Naughton for QPR, and could play a part in negotiations regarding Remy's prospective transfer.
