According to a report in the Daily Express, Tottenham are one of the leading contenders for the signature of Lyon forward Memphis Depay and could move for him in the January transfer window.
Depay previously featured for Manchester United but failed to make an impression in the year and a half he spent at Old Trafford.
However, since his move to Lyon, the 25-year-old has been setting the Ligue 1 alight with his flair and attacking quality. The Dutch international has already netted eleven goals for the French giants so far this season (transfermarkt.com).
His performances for Lyon have reportedly caught the attention of several Premier League clubs with Spurs and Liverpool mentioned as the front runners.
The report suggests that Tottenham and Liverpool might be locked in a two way battle for Depay in the January transfer window while Calciomercato claim that the attacker will cost in the region of €50million (£42.6m).
Spurs Web Opinion
While Depay did flatter to deceive at Manchester United, he was arguably let go too quickly by the club. He has certainly looked a completely different player for Lyon now that he has his confidence back. I certainly won’t be against the club bringing him in as he can be a great option in Mourinho’s 4-3-3.
