Spurs prepare bid for QPR ace

Loic RemyA handful of Spurs fans were in the Football Transfer Tavern for last night’s Europa League win in Cyprus.

But the main talking point was how thin on the ground the North London club are when it comes to strikers.

You know you do not have much up top when you are playing Harry Kane and it seems that boss Mauricio Pochettino agrees.

Because according to the Daily Star Spurs are preparing an £11 million bid for QPR hotshot Loic Remy.

The bid is £2.5 million more than the deal QPR previously agreed with Liverpool before he failed a medical.

And that is because a clause in the Frenchman’s contract allows him to leave for a Champions League club on the cheap.

Spurs however are still keen on bringing him to White Hart Lane and they believe that a cash plus player move could help persuade former boss Harry Redknapp.

Michael Dawson, Andros Townsend or Tom Carroll could be used as makeweights although it is also suggested that they would be able to loan Nabil Bentaleb or Etienne Capoue.

Tottenham fans: It looks like your club could sign Remy for the same price as Fulham paid for Ross McCormack. What is the catch?
