According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Memphis Depay from Lyon in the January transfer window.

It has been reported that Tottenham are ready to make a £50 million bid for Depay, having scouted the Lyon forward during Champions League games against Benfica this season.

The French club lost 2-1 to Benfica in Champions League Group G on October 23 and won 3-1 against the Portuguese giants on November 5.

The report has also claimed that Lyon paid Manchester United £15m in transfer fees to sign the 25-year-old Netherlands international in January 2017.

 

Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

Depay struggled in the Premier League during his time at United, but the forward has regained his form at Lyon.

The 25-year-old will add pace, creativity and goals to Tottenham, and he would be a good signing for the North London outfit.

Stats

According to WhoScored, Depay has scored seven goals and provided one assist in Ligue 1 and has scored four goals in the Champions League for Lyon so far this season.
