Tottenham Hotspur have ‘made an offer’ to Barcelona for Memphis Depay this summer, according to reports.
The Lilywhites, who have no silverware to play for this season, have failed to win a trophy since 2008, something the club wants to change at the earliest opportunity.
Spurs now plan to bolster their chances of winning silverware next season with the addition of Depay, as per transfer insider Gerard Romero.
The Spaniard, on his Twitch channel, claims Tottenham have ‘made an offer’ to Barcelona for Depay with the view to a move materialising in the summer.
Depay is no stranger to the Premier League having plied his trade for Manchester United between 2015 and 2017.
The Dutch international joined Barcelona in the summer from Lyon and has been one of their better players in a season where they’ve under-performed.
Depay has scored 10 goals in 19 La Liga appearances with 11 league games remaining this campaign.
The forward could be seen as competition for Harry Kane next season with the Lilywhites looking to keep their star man in the summer.
However, with the club failing to win a trophy this campaign and looking likely to miss out on a top four finish in the league, it is possible that Kane could depart north London at the end of the season with Manchester United ‘examining’ the Englishman’s situation.
According to the Mirror, the Reds are ‘considering’ a move for Kane this summer with cross-town rivals Manchester City targeting Erling Haaland.
The future of Kane remains to be seen, especially with his recent comments about how much he is enjoying playing under Antonio Conte.
