Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Barcelona forward Memphis Depay and some news is expected just ‘next week’, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Spurs interest…
Lilywhites head coach Antonio Conte and sporting director Fabio Paratici may be attracted by Depay’s contract situatuion at the Camp Nou, with his deal set to expire in 2023 as things stand.
The Latest: Depay news expected ‘next week’…
In recent days, Spanish outlet Sport have shared an update on links to Tottenham and Depay’s future.
Indeed, Depay will apparently ‘announce his decision’ over a transfer when he returns to Barca training in that time.
The Verdict: Right man?
As Conte chases Champions League qualification for the second-successive campaign, reinforcements in the attacking positions are very much needed – as highlighted by Richarlison’s latest injury.
Called ‘brilliant’ by pundit Kevin Campbell, Depay could be the man to add back up and for a potentially cheap fee in January given his contract expiry date.
While he hasn’t featured often under Xavi this season, the Dutchman was in fact a key player over 2021/2022, standing out as their top goal scorer and fourth-best performer by average match rating (WhoScored).
The 28-year-old is in his prime and still possesses quality in abundance, making this a possibly shrewd move by Spurs if they can strike a deal.
