Tottenham Hotspur unlikely to sign Barcelona’s Memphis Depay and Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat
Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move to sign Sofyan Amrabat of Morocco and Fiorentina, who is also on the radars of Liverpool.
According to 90min (h/t Football.London), Memphis Depay is a player that has been linked with Spurs ahead of the January transfer window. The Netherlands international moved to Barcelona in the summer of 2021.
But he has fallen heavily out of favour since the arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich. Depay has played in just five La Liga games this campaign.
On paper, this looks like the ideal duo to sign. The 28-year-old Dutchman is versatile enough to play across anywhere in attack and is a proven attacking threat at club and international level.
What next for Depay and Amrabat?
He has a taste of Premier League football with Manchester United and excelled at Lyon. Amrabat, meanwhile, is 26 and in the prime years of his career.
The defensive midfielder has burst onto the scene after he captained Morocco to a record fourth-placed finish at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Fiorentina midfielder was a relatively unknown quantity outside Italy and his homeland before the event in Qatar.
But now, he seems to be the talk of the town. But while Spurs have been linked with the duo who could be on the move due to different reasons – one for playing time, the other, to take the next big step in his career – the chances of signing them are slim.
That is according to the Daily Mail, who claim that Spurs are unlikely to bring the duo to N17. It makes sense on some level considering we cannot offer guaranteed starting berths to them.

Amrabat especially would come with a high valuation after his hype in Qatar. Both him and Depay are arguably ideal to add to this team to increase competition, but they too would have personal ambitions that we may not be able to fulfil given the quality already in our starting XI.
