Marseille's 20m Remy is target for title-chasing Tottenham
Tottenham are laying ambitious plans
in the transfer market to ensure this season's Premier League title
challenge is not a one-off.
Marseille's 20million France striker
Loic Remy and Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul are the primary targets as
chairman Daniel Levy plans to bring in four quality signings before the
start of next season.
Top target: Loic Remy (right) is wanted by Spurs
Levy is determined to continue the momentum gained by challenging Manchester City and Manchester United this season and believes new star names will persuade Gareth Bale and Luka Modric to stay.
He has also not given up hope of keeping manager Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane, even if England come calling after Euro 2012.
Remy, 24, will be watched by the north London club again tonight when Marseille play Lille.
Tottenham would like to sign him in this transfer window but if the French club reject that idea because of their participation in the Champions League, White Hart Lane officials will return in the summer.
Similarly, a move for 10m keeper Krul is likely in the summer if the Dutchman fails to agree a new contract in the North-East.
Krul is looking to earn parity with other top keepers, like Liverpool's Pepe Reina, who is on about 80,000 a week.
Other positions where Spurs will strengthen are at centre-half and on the flanks, with Steven Pienaar, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Vedran Corluka, Aaron Lennon and William Gallas all vulnerable.
Redknapp has said he would like to bring in one 'special player' this window – and that player could be Remy, 24.
He has been compared with Thierry Henry and is set to be part of the France team to face England in this summer's European Championship.
