Spurs back in for £11m-rated Loic Remy

Tottenham could be set for a late move to sign Queens Park Rangers forward Loic Remy for £11 million, according to the Daily Star.

The newspaper reports that Tottenham are ready to follow their long standing interest in the Frenchman after his £8.5million move to Liverpool fell through. The inflated fee is due to a clause in Remy's contract that allows him to move to a Champions League side for a lower amount.


Remy was on loan at Newcastle last season, scoring 14 in 26 Premier League appearances, and not for the first time saw a transfer fall through. Rumoured knee issues caused the former Marseille striker to fail a medical at Stoke City before he joined QPR, and there is a chance another move could fall through, and not just because of knee trouble.

Tottenham need to offload players to make space for Remy, with Roberto Soldado a prime candidate to leave.


The Daily Star say Spurs hope they can tempt ex-manager Harry Redknapp into a deal involving Michael Dawson, Andros Townsend or Tom Carroll, the latter two having spent time on loan at Loftus Road.

With Spurs also looking to sign a new centre back, with Federico Fazio of Seville and Argetina now looking the likely player, Tottenham will need to free up space in their non-home-grown quota, so an exit for Dawson or Townsend in the Remy deal looks unlikely. However with both Redknapp and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy known for their activity late into the transfer window, anything could happen.
