I'd be very very happy with Vertonghen, very impressed with him. A cb pool of Kaboul Vertonghen, Caulker and Dawson would be very good imo.
Kouroux's a Marseille fan so he can tell you all about him but I really like Remy, certainly one of the best forwards in Ligue Un and the talent's unquestionable. I'd question where exactly he fits in for Spurs though, because I don't see him as being suited to take up the target man role you've played with - Adebayor, Crouch and to a lesser extent Berbatov - so well in the past few years. He's played out wide a lot for club and country and as far as I can tell that's mainly because he's unsuited to playing as the single centre forward as it is. I think he'd flourish in a two-man attack more than he's done in his role at Marseille but is it really likely to see you bring in another forward to play alongside him. Defoe and Remy wouldn't be too bad I suppose.
