Spurs transfer news: Three-goal World Cup star and £17m winger both linked

A select round-up of news relating to Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay according to the Mirror.

The 20-year-old netted for Holland in their World Cup victory over Australia last week and he is highly regarded in his homeland.

Manchester United were linked with a move for the left-sided player following Louis van Gaal’s appointment, but it is now being claimed that Spurs could make a move for a player rated at £17million.

Despite being right-footed he predominantly plays on the opposite flank, and he netted 14 goals and set up a further 10 for PSV last season. Considering those figures, and his apparent price-tag, he would be an amazing signing if Tottenham could get him.

In other news, the Sunday Express reports that Tottenham are competing with Newcastle United and Everton for Ecuador’s Enner Valencia.

The Pachuca front-man has already scored three goals in two World Cup games this summer, and it is being claimed Tottenham lead the race for his signature.

There is no doubt Mauricio Pochettino needs some additional strikers as he heads into the new season, and at 25, Valencia could be the perfect signing…if he maintains his recent sparkling form, that is.
