After being spurred into action by West Ham’s advances, both Liverpool and Tottenham have moved quickly to enter the race to sign highly-rated Nice striker Loic Remy.
Nice’s chief executive Patrick Governatori has claimed that both clubs have made bids of between €14.5 million and €15.5 million for the 23-year-old French international, with Remy himself admitting that he’d prefer a move to Anfield;
“It will be a choice between two clubs with big futures. I have a slight preference for a prestige club like Liverpool, even though Tottenham are also very, very interesting.
Nothing has been decided. Wherever I play, I’ll have to fight and work hard to win my place.”
The Hammers have already seen a £11.5 million bid for Remy rejected, and co-owners David’s Gold and Sullivan are reported to be in the south of France attempting to rush through a deal with the player’s representatives.

As an aside, see if you can guess who these following quotes belong to…
“Arsenal are the club I want to join. I won’t deny they are my priority. Arsenal are a young, ambitious side and I love to watch them play. It is the ideal place for me. I spoke with Thierry [Henry] about them and asked him lots of questions about life there. That is because I have been an Arsenal fan since I was little. I was not disappointed with what he told me.” March 24th.
“I would like it to be sorted quickly. I’ve always loved the English league. I’ve always dreamed of playing in England. When a club like West Ham is on the cards, it’s always interesting.” July 12th
