According to SPORT, Memphis Depay is a top target for Tottenham in this summer transfer window.

Spanish giants Barcelona are expected to demand more than €20 million for the Dutch attacker.

The 28-year-old had inconsistent performances in the 2021/2022 season, scoring only 13 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions.

Barcelona might rush to cash on him this summer as he has entered the final year of the deal he signed with Barca.

Xavi’s side are eyeing both Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski, meaning Barca are ready to let Depay leave to raise funds for the new targets.

According to SPORT, Antonio Conte’s side has a high chance of securing a deal to sign the forward.

This transfer reportedly began during negotiations for the recently completed Clement Lenglet transfer on loan.

Spurs’ move for Depay is surprising given the number of attackers they have. The transfer move could have been reasonable if Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura were to leave.

Depay’s recent comments about his future indicated he wants to remain at Camp Nou beyond this year.
