Tottenham told to pay £11m for Remy
Tottenham would reportedly have to pay more than any of the top four clubs to land striker Loic Remy thanks to a two tier clause in his current QPR contract, according to the Telegraph.
Were Spurs to make a move for the Frenchman a second buyout clause in his contract states that a club that finished outside the top four would have to pay £3m more for his services, complicating any deal.
Remy has been linked with numerous top clubs this summer, with Spurs amongst them, and it was initially thought that anyone could sign the striker for £8m.
However it is understood that the second clause means clubs finishing fifth and sixth would have to pay £11m should they want him.
QPR are still holding onto hope that they can keep hold of the France ace with no club yet to meet the £8m fee – Arsenal had been interested but remain out off by his £80,000 a week wages, while Liverpool are investigating other targets.
Finishing sixth would mean chairman Daniel Levy would need to match the £11m asking price – something he may not be keen to do given his reputation of extracting the best deal out of any situation.
Remy scored 14 goals in 27 appearances whilst on loan at Newcastle last season after QPR were relegated, and impressed throughout the campaign despite an injury lay off.
