Spurs were linked with Loic Remy during the January transfer window and now, according to the Metro, Marseille may be willing to let the striker go in the summer.
Marseille's financial situation means one or two player sales are almost certain and Remy may be the player to go.
The ex-Nice star recently said he wanted to remain with Marseille for at least another season, but it now seems unlikely he will get his wish.
Marseille boss Didier Deschamps needs to raise transfer funds to strengthen his squad following a disappointing season that will see the club finish in mid-table.
Reports in the French press have suggested his preferred way to do it is to sell Remy for a fee approaching £16million.
Current Tottenham loan player Emmanuel Adebayor has expressed his interest to stay and Harry Redknapp wants to keep him, but his high wages could end the possibility of a full transfer.
A move for Remy would be unlikely to cause such contract problems for Tottenham and if Marseille really are willing to sell for financial gain, then Tottenham may be able to decrease the transfer price as well.
