Loic Remy has told skysports.com he is 'relaxed' about his future, amid reports that West Ham United have made a bid for him.

The 23-year-old striker is rated as one of the best prospects in Ligue 1 and has already been capped by France.

Labelled as the 'New Thierry Henry' for a number of years, Remy opted to leave Lyon for Nice in 2008 and he has impressed ever since.

French champions Marseille and his former club Lyon, are very keen on Remy, whilst Italian clubs AC Milan and Fiorentina were strongly linked last year.

Arsene Wenger is thought to be a long-term admirer of Remy but West Ham are now reported to have firmed up their interest.

French sources claim The Hammers have lodged a bid of €12million (£9.8million)

However, it is also claimed that West Ham offered to pay the fee in three instalments of €4million - which Nice have rebuffed as they want most of the money up-front.

The player himself insists he is letting Nice decide on his future.

"I am returning back to training this week," Remy told skysports.com.

"I am still a Nice player. If they decide to sell me, I will listen to offers and see what we can do, but I am relaxed and if nothing happens, I will be happy to stay here."
