Tottenham have been encouraged in their pursuit of Loic Remy after the striker admitted he would relish the opportunity to play in the Premier League but warned he would wait until after Euro 2012 before making any decision over his future.

Remy, 25, was linked with a move to Spurs in January after the striker impressed for Marseille in the opening half of the season.

However, Tottenham failed to match the Ligue 1 side's asking price and Remy remained at the Stade Velodrome beyond the end of the January transfer window.

Nevertheless, Remy's head has been turned by Tottenham's reported interest and the club could return with a renewed bid in the summer, provided they can guarantee the Frenchman Champions League football.

"I could play on the pitches of the English championship, the Spanish, the Italian, but one thing at a time," Remy told Surface Magazine - via L'Equipe.

"I'm trying to finish the season well with my club. If indeed I have the opportunity to go to the Euros, I want to have a very good Euros - after that we'll see."

The purported Tottenham target has notched nine goals in 21 league appearances for Marseille this season but he remains under contract with the Ligue 1 side until 2015.
