Remy still open to move as Tottenham and Arsenal up interest

Loic Remy has refuted speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League insisting that he is happy at Marseille.

Speaking to Canal + the French attacker conceded that he would consider offers from the reportedly interested Arsenal and Tottenham but is fully focused on preseason training at the Ligue 1 side.

He said: “For now, I am very proud to wear this shirt. It is not news that I could leave but we’ll see. I am preparing very well for a new season with my club.”

The 25-year-old has been with Marseille for two years, signing for them in 2010 from Nice. The former Lyon youth product has played 83 games for L’OM and has scored 37 times – repeating his impressive goal scoring stats, have netted a total of 69 in 184 appearances at club level.

So far no bids have come in from the two North London sides, however it was reported back in May that Tottenham representatives had met with representatives of Remy in Paris – at the time it was said that his main concern was which manager he would be playing for, due to the uncertainty over the future of Harry Redknapp at the time. With new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas now in place, it remains to be seen if Remy would be open to such a move.
