Transfer expert provides update on Tottenham’s reported interest in Memphis Depay


An update on Tottenham’s reported interested in Memphis Depay has emerged this week.

Depay would join the Spanish powerhouse on a free transfer last summer after his contract with Lyon expired.

He went on to open 2021/22 as Barca’s main striker, scoring four and assisting two in his first eight La Liga outings of the campaign.

However, due to a combination of injury, a change in manager and a busy January for Barcelona, Depay now appears to be a fringe option.

The 28-year-old has scored twice in his last four league games, but has not been handed more than 19 minutes of action in any of those matches.

Instead, La Blaugrana have been relying on Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for most of their goals.

So, it was not too surprising to see reports coming from Spain claiming that Tottenham had made an offer for the Dutch international.

Depay to Tottenham?

Now though, those rumours have been put to bed by Fabrizio Romano.

Speaking on the latest edition of his podcast, Romano claimed that there is no proposal from Spurs and they do not see Depay as a priority: “Yes, there are still some rumours about Memphis Depay, many rumours coming from Spain for Memphis Depay to Tottenham.

But again, what I'm told is that there is no proposal from Tottenham. It's something that they're not discussing now, it’s not a priority for Tottenham. Even because Kulusevski will, of course, stay next season and is a player that is super happier. Also Son of course is a player that is part of the project. So for Tottenham at the moment Depay is not a priority, this is what I’m told.”
