Highly-rated Marseille striker Loic Remy will wait and see whether Tottenham qualify for the Champions League before declaring an interest in moving to north London, according to Mirror Football.
The France international has impressed at club and national level, and was a target for Harry Redknapp’s men in January, only for the Ligue 1 outfit to turn down a sizeable bid.
With Emmanuel Adebayor’s future at White Hart Lane unclear after his loan from Manchester City ended, Spurs are eager to bring in a new centre forward this summer, with Remy the preferred option.
However, with Chelsea playing in the Champions League final this Saturday and able to steal Spurs’ place in next year’s competition with victory, the French attacker is waiting to see if Redknapp’s men are part of next term’s tournament.
If Bayern Munich manage to beat the Blues and Spurs remain in the Champions League, a £20 million deal for Remy is being lined up.
Remy is currently injured, with a thigh knock keeping him on the sidelines for three to four weeks, and threatening his involvement in Euro 2012.
