‘Not a priority’ – Romano issues update on Depay, Spurs rumours



Tottenham are not prioritising a move for Barcelona forward Memphis Depay, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Holland international has played 29 times for the Blaugrana following his free transfer from Lyon last summer.

Decision time: One loanee per club sparking a dilemma

He started their first 16 matches in La Liga this season before picking up an injury. Since returning, he has only featured for 88 minutes in total in the Spanish top flight.

There have been numerous reports that Barcelona are looking to sell Depay in the upcoming summer transfer window. The 28-year-old only signed a two-year contract when he joined the Catalan giants.

Despite his lack of game time in recent months, Depay is still Barca’s top scorer this season, with Aubameyang now one goal behind despite having played 17 games less.

It was reported over the weekend that Tottenham are ‘top of the list’ of the Premier League sides to sign the former Manchester United forward.

It is said that Depay is happy in Catalonia but will ‘study his situation’ with numerous sides in Italy, as well as Lyon, also keen.

Renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano has been “told” that Spurs are not prioritising the Dutchman as they head into the summer transfer window.

He says that the north Londoners are happy with Heung-min Son and January arrival Dejan Kulusevski in the forward area.

“Yes, there are still some rumours about Memphis Depay, especially from Spain about Memphis Depay and Tottenham,” Romano said on his Here We Go Podcast (via HITC).

“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.

“Kulusevski will stay next season and he’s a player they’re super happy with, and Son is of course also part of the project. For Tottenham, Memphis Depay is not a priority, that is what I am told.”
