Tottenham target Barcelona striker Memphis Depay

It is an open secret that the Spurs need to sign a striker.

Tottenham are targeting Barcelona striker Memphis Depay, according to the football transfer rumours in British media.

The Netherlands international joined Barcelona from Lyon on a free transfer in July 2021. His contract is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

In 27 appearances for Barcelona, Depay has managed to score 10 goals, and create two goals for his teammates.

The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Netherlands. His record for Netherlands is also impressive. Depay has scored 38 goals in 75 matches for Netherlands at senior level.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Tottenham.

The Spurs are looking to sign a striker and have identified the 28-year-old as potential transfer target. Antonio Conte is a firm fan of Barcelona striker and Tottenham could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.

Tottenham are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

The former Lyon man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Tottenham are eyeing Barcelona striker Memphis Depay. With a deal only to 2023, Depay’s future with Barca is in doubt, reports local reporter Gerard Romero. Indeed, with Barca seeking to sign Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, there’s a belief Depay is prepared to depart this summer. And a return to the Premier League could be on for the former Manchester United attacker. Spurs are watching developments closely, where in Spain Depay has been mentioned as a potential replacement for Harry Kane.”

The Spanish giants are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the striker, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

If Tottenham can agree on a fee with Barcelona, the deal should be easy to complete.

Good signing for Tottenham?

Signing the striker could be a good decision as he could improve Conte’s attacking options.

If Memphis Depay is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Tottenham.

A move away from Barcelona will not be only the best move for Depay, but also for the club.

How strong that interest is and whether Tottenham will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
