Redknapp winning race for France hitman
Tottenham will win the race to sign Marseille striker Loic Remy in the upcoming transfer window, according to a report in France.
Harry Redknapp's men are heading into their final Premier League game on Sunday knowing a win at Fulham could secure third spot in the Premier League and guarantee a place in next season's Champions League. However, Spurs are already making plans for next term regardless and have been heavily linked with a swoop for 25-year-old France international, Remy, who has scored 12 goals and provided five assists in Ligue 1 this season. The former Nice hitman was linked with a move to White Hart Lane in the January window, but a reported 24 million euro bid, including Roman Pavlyuchenko, was snubbed. French newspaper La Provence has now revealed that Remy is set to depart the Stade Velodrome in the summer and Spurs are his likely destination with a move possibly being tied up before France's Euro 2012 campaign next month. The news contradicts a recent admission from Remy who suggested he was not looking to leave Marseille at this moment in time. He told France Football: "I'm not ready to go now. I do not feel like I have played a full season with Marseille. I have a sense of unfulfilled duty."
