Spurs primed for Remy bid
Tottenham are reportedly set to offer £16million for Marseille striker Loic Remy on Monday as they begin their summer spending spree.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was keen to land Remy in January, but the French club's asking price was too high and there was no deal. However, the Ligue 1 outfit's financial situation has now changed and they are actively seeking offers for their top players, including the 25-year-old forward. Reports suggest that Spurs are still interested in the France international hit-man, who was ruled out of the Euro 2012 finals due to injury, and a formal bid by the north Londoners is expected early next week. Marseille chairman Vincent Labrune may reject Tottenham's initial offer, but the price will not have to go much higher for a deal to be agreed for a player who cost £12million when he moved to Marseille from Nice in 2010.
