Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly reignite their interest in France striker Loic Remy, if Queens Park Rangers fail to beat relegation this season, bringing a release clause in the forward's contract into play.
The 26-year-old was heavily linked with move to Spurs last summer, while he was at Marseille, but the north London outfit failed to agree on a deal with the French side, who were understood to have placed a £15m price tag on the player.
Remy eventually joined the Hoops in an £8m move in January and has been impressive in the Premier League so far, scoring five times in eight appearances. However, the France international's goal-scoring form might not be enough to prevent QPR from escaping the drop, with the west London club currently seven points away from safety.
If QPR fail to maintain their top-flight status, Remy's suitors can trigger a clause in his contract, which allows the striker to leave the club on a cut-price deal, believed to be between £4m to £8m. And Spurs are now considering triggering the clause, according to the Guardian.
Tottenham's archrivals Arsenal have also been linked with a summer move for Remy. The Frenchman is seen as a cheaper alternative to Gunners' top target and Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic, who could cost up to £25m.
Former Tottenham midfielder Adel Taarabt is another in-demand player who could leave QPR at the end of the season. Meanwhile, Esteban Granero, Christopher Samba and Julio Cesar could also make their exit from Loftus Road, as the club would look to trim the wage bill, when they drop to the Championship.
Holtby: Everton Draw is a Missed Opportunity
Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby admitted his side missed a great opportunity to cement their place in the top four, following the weekend's 2-2 draw against Everton at White Hart Lane.
Spurs are currently fourth in the league table, level on points with Chelsea and two clear of Arsenal, having played a game more than their London rivals.
"I think so, yes [Spurs needed to beat Everton]. But the positive is that we didn't lose to a rival. It was a good performance in the second half but, if we want to play in the Champions League, we want to win those games," Holtby said.
"We've still got decisive games against [Manchester] City at home and against Chelsea away. Even the games against Southampton and Sunderland, these games we have to win. After 38 games, we have to stay in the top four. I have big faith in us because we have a quality side," the German added.
