Fabrizio Romano takes stock on rumor linking Memphis Depay to Tottenham

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur wants to continue improving their attack to ensure they’re not dependent on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. During the January transfer window, the north London club landed Dejan Kulusevski, who has adapted well to the Premier League.

Nonetheless, this coming summer, Spurs are reportedly in for another forward. Over the last couple of weeks, FC Barcelona forward Memphis Depay has been connected to a possible move to north London.

However, transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Spurs are ‘not prioritizing’ a move for Depay despite rumors to the contrary. The 28-year-old has seen his role decrease since the arrival of Xavi as manager. 

“What I am told is that there is no proposal from Tottenham, it’s something they’re not discussing now, and it’s not a priority right now,” Romano said on his “Here We Go” podcast. 

Depay arrived last summer on a free transfer to the Spanish club and signed a two-year contract. The Dutch forward has scored ten goals in 29 appearances in all competitions. 

He has Premier League experience, but his stint with Manchester United didn’t go well, so should Spurs consider him, perhaps Depay could be tempted.

We are not going to get a quality young striker unless they come out of our acedamy. That is why once Conte decided he was going use Bergwjin as Kane’s backup, still has not happened in a game since, he should have sent out Dane on loan. Milan won because of Conte so if I were to go get a striker it would be Martinez. He would trusts Conte to use him as a striking partner with Kane, who will have more on field respect for him as oppose to some guy looking to unseat him. However, Kane would become the best 10 in the world, scoring less goals, but better allround game. If that is not the case then we need an Erikssen type player. I can see Kulu dropping in at right wing back to accommodate a creative mid in all these scenarios if keep running 2 holding mids out in a 343 set. I said it before, if Skipp is the man next to Betancur, it does not look good for Hojberg, as he would become surplus. 3 holding mids, not counting Winks or Tanguy for 2 spots. Hojberg is not a squad player so using him for cups ties if we do not make top 4 would be unthinkable. But those are the hard choices a club has to make to be a better team. Watching Nathan Aki, $40m getting a game at City. Spurs cannot afford to stock pile those kind of buys like Chelsea, City and Pool. So our buys must hit the ground running. I do not see this summer as a problem to buy, we should concentrate on getting rid of the dead bolts and there are about 6 that needs to go to bring us about $50M to offset some costs. We must be the only club with zero player with expiring contracts this summer. SMH.

Rather Bereton Diaz ..if he recovers from his injury ..he was on fire before he got injured..can seemingly finish from anywhere round the area.

THFC in the past week alone have been linked to: Depay, Martinez, Dybala, Abraham, Osimhen, Schick, Belotti, Scamacca. (Anyone else?)
& one could bet that list will, by the time the summer transfer window ends, be augmented either with a modicum of truth or more likely, a bucket load of ‘road apples.’

But this article did not say Arsenal will e bottling Spurs for his signature. I think something is fishy here. It seems like these Journos or writers,bloggers or whatever all have the same sources in their heads 😆.

We need a good striker to properly rotate with Kane, and play with him some of the time, and we need wing backs because we haven’t got the quality for CL football now. Reggie is like a headless chicken and Doherty is, well Doherty. The last time I checked Memphis won’t fill any of those holes. A forward is not a striker, just more of the same that we’ve already got.

Actually 10 from 29 is ok+ for a non front line attacker but we have 5 in the squad so would have to move on Wee Stevie and/or Wee Lucas (both who have little end product and yes of course I remember Leicester).
