Tottenham to battle Arsenal, Chelsea for Memphis Depay

According to a report from Spanish publication Todofichajes (h/t Express) Tottenham Hotspur are set to battle it out with fellow London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea for Olympique Lyon star Memphis Depay.

Depay is widely remembered for his failed stint at Manchester United between 2015 and 2017. But since joining Lyon in January 2017, the Dutchman has managed to revive his career in spectacular fashion. In 134 appearances for the French outfit, the 26-year-old has scored 53 goals and assisted 43 more.

The 2019/20 campaign was an injury-riddled one for Depay as he has been ruled out since December last year due to a cruciate ligament rupture. Prior to that, he had managed a return of 14 goals and 2 assists in 18 appearances.

With the Ligue 1 concluding earlier this month after France prohibited all sporting events till September due to the coronavirus pandemic, Depay’s future has been thrown into uncertainty. The 26-year-old is entering the final year of his contract with the club and with no European football next season, could be sold by Lyon. (h/t Express)

This has put several clubs in England on high alert, including Tottenham (h/t Express). Given the lack of depth in our attacking contingent, adding someone of his quality would benefit the club. The Netherlands international can play anywhere across the frontline and has prior experince in the Premier League as well.

Depay, at 26, is a much more experienced player and is miles better than his Manchester United days. The fact that he was entrusted with the captain’s armband at Lyon on several occasions shows his rise since leaving England.

However, it was under Jose Mourinho that the Dutchman suffered during his time in England. So, it does seem a tad unlikely that he would want to work with the Portuguese again.
