Tottenham Hotspur are ready to send a tempting offer to France for Marseille’s prolific goal-getter Loic Remy.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp wants to add another striker in the current transfer window and, with Russian forward Roman Pavlyuchenko keen to exit White Hart Lane, will step up his interest in Remy.
According to French radio station RMC, Spurs have lined up an offer for the 24-year-old that includes cash plus Pavlyuchenko.
Marseille coach Didier Deschamps, like Redknapp, also wants to sign another striker, but will be reluctant to lose Remy, who has provided his side with their most consistent goal threat this season.
A bid of cash, with which to bring in another forward, and Pavlyuchenko to replace Remy at the Stade Velodrome, may appeal to the former Juventus boss, but it would represent a significant change to Marseille’s side for the second half of the campaign.
Deschamps’ has been delighted with Remy’s performance in Ligue 1 this season and the France international has found the back of the net seven times in 18 games.
Pavlyuchenko meanwhile is insistent on leaving Tottenham this month as he frets over a spot in the Russia side for Euro 2012.
