Memphis Depay doesn’t rule out Premier League move amidst Tottenham links
The Dutch attacker has turned his career around after leaving Manchester United and joining Lyon.
Depay is now a regular for the national side and his manager, Ronald Koeman, was open to the attacker playing for a bigger club (h/t Football.london).
Depay was asked about the Tottenham links as the Dutch are in action during the international break.
The former Manchester United spoke to Voetbal Primeur and didn’t want to speak much about the rumours (h/t Football.london):
“I don’t want to talk about that. I don’t want to talk about rumours that I know nothing about.
“We leave it in the corridors. I am focused on a strong season so far.”
Depay was pressed about playing in the Premier League, and the 25-year-old didn’t rule out a return:
“It’s a very nice competition. It’s up to the club that is interested.
“I belong in a team that plays good football and can play around me, so that I can do my thing. I never rule it out.”
Depay in fine form for Lyon
The Ligue 1 giants sold Tanguy Ndombele and Nabil Fekir in the summer, but Depay is still scoring regularly for the side.
The 25-year-old has 12 goals in all competitions for Lyon and also has nine goals for the Netherlands too.
A return to the Premier League could allow the Dutchman to show that he has improved after his United days.

However, spending £50m is still a massive risk for any club, and it will be interesting to see if we make a serious offer for Depay soon.
