Harry Redknapp has now seen London and France, but Marseille striker Loic Remy's underpants will remain a mystery to him. Redknapp did, however, get an opportunity to see the French striker score twice against Lille to bring Marseille within two points of the Champions League places.

Remy now has nine goals on the season, including six scored with his head. Harry Redknapp seems to definitely be interested in Loic Remy with a swap deal for Roman Pavlyuchenko having been rumored for a couple of weeks now. Marseille seem to be holding out for real money though and lots of £22 million has been quoted as OM's asking price. This is almost certainly a valuation Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy will hesitate to meet.

We've discussed Remy before and I still question how he would fit in at Spurs. However, we don't really know that Redknapp was looking at Remy. He could have just as well been looking at Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta, Nicholas, N'Koulou, Lucho Gonzalez, Mathieu Valbuena, or even Joe Cole. Sure, maybe Remy or Hazard are the most probable options, but one can never be too sure with Harry Redknapp.

Hopefully, the Wolves match was enough to tell Harry that this squad needs SOMETHING in the transfer window and he headed off to France to find that something. We're just over halfway through the window at this point and I'm starting to get anxious.
