Report: Tottenham top the list to sign Memphis Depay this summer

Tottenham Hotspur are at the top of the list of Premier League clubs hoping to sign Memphis Depay this summer, according to a report from Mundo Deportivo.

Depay is in an interesting situation at Barcelona heading into the end of the season. The Dutchman is currently their top goalscorer, having found the back of the net on 10 occasions in La Liga.

However, injury problems around the turn of the year saw the 28-year-old fall down the pecking order. And he has not started for some time. His last 90 minute appearance came back in December.

Interestingly, his contract only has one more year left to run despite the fact that he only joined the club last summer. And with that, a host of sides are now keen on a move this summer.

Previous reports claimed that Tottenham had made an offer for Depay already. Mundo Deportivo is now suggesting that Spurs are top of the list of Premier League sides interested in the forward.

There is plenty of competition. Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli and AC Milan all want to take him to Italy. Meanwhile, Lyon want him back.

Depay would be an exciting signing for Tottenham amid contract situation

Depay did not have a great time when he was previously in the Premier League. But he looks to have matured as a player and has done fairly well since joining Barca.

He has previously been labelled a ‘world-class‘ talent. And he should be at the peak of his powers at his current age.

His contract situation also opens the door for a potential bargain. Barcelona may not dig their heels in, particularly as they look to make a move for Raphinha.

Clearly, there is some way to go before Depay’s future is decided. But Tottenham are seemingly well-placed.
