Tottenham ‘targeting shock Memphis Depay transfer swoop from Barcelona after agreeing Clement Lenglet loan deal’

T

Tottenham have set their sights on Barcelona star Memphis Depay as they near completion of the deal to sign his teammate Clement Lenglet, according to reports.

The 27-year-old centre-back, Lenglet, is expected to join Spurs on loan.

Clement Lenglet’s loan move to Tottenham is apparently a done deal.

Tottenham could shop at the Nou Camp again as they reportedly have an interest in Memphis Depay. The Netherlands striker is priced at 6/1 by Sky Bet to sign for the North London club before the transfer window shuts in September.

The 28-year-old has just a year left on his contract at the Nou Camp, so the Spanish side could be willing to sell him for a fee this summer before his contract runs out.

Memphis Depay joined the Spanish giants from Lyon on a free transfer just last summer, scoring 13 times in 37 appearances last season, of which just 21 were starts.

The arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January and the increasingly likely signing of Robert Lewandowski this window may mean that Memphis Depay will find minutes hard to come by next season.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims the Frenchman agreed personal terms with the North London side last week and only final details need to be finalised.

Meanwhile, Spurs reportedly hold an interest in fellow Barca star Memphis Depay.

The 28-year-old is about to enter the final year of his deal at the Nou Camp.

And Barcelona are open to selling him according to Sport, who claim they need the money due to the club’s battles with financial difficulties.

Spurs could do with a new attacker as Steven Bergwijn is on the verge of leaving the club and signing for Ajax in a deal worth £26million.

He reportedly declined moves to Everton and Manchester United.

Lenglet had a tough year at Barca as he struggled to find top form playing just 26 times in the campaign just finished.

As for Depay, the former United star was more of a regular in the team making 37 appearances scoring 13 goals last season.

Tottenham are having a busy summer transfer window as they look to heavily back Conte as he prepares for the club’s Champions League return.

They have already signed Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison.

Aside for Lenglet and Depay there could be more arrivals as Spurs want a new right wing-back and are targeting Djed Spence.
