The sun is just fading in the Football Transfer Tavern’s beer garden this evening and one of those taking in some rays is David Kent from Mail Online.
Kent has just finished his shift with the website and has been writing an interesting story about Tottenham reviving their interest in Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy, who has spent the season on-loan with Newcastle United.
The French international has hit 13 goals for the Magpies in a very productive spell at St. James’ Park and this has brought about attention from other Premier League clubs who are interested in the 27-year-old.
Remy is almost certain to depart Loftus Road on a permanent basis in the summer with no guarantees that Harry Redknapp’s side will be playing top-flight football next season.
While recent reports in the tavern have suggested that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is considering the former Marseille man, Kent explains that the return of highly-respected scout Ian Broomfield to White Hart Lane could make the difference.
Broomfield, who has been poached by Spurs from QPR, is a big admirer of the prolific forward and this could see Spurs reigniting any interest they had in Remy.
Meanwhile, Kent suggests that the future of Tottenham centre back Younes Kaboul is up in the air given possible interest from Besiktas. The French defender has struggled with injuries this term but no decision is likely about his future until the management structure is decided.
Do you think that Tottenham can fend off attention from Arsenal to sign the French forward? Let us know your thoughts below.
