Reports have emerged in recent weeks suggesting the north London club do hold an interest in the 28-year-old winger along with a number of other big European sides.

It has been a difficult couple of months for the Dutchman who has suffered a number of setbacks through injury which has seen his game time take a blow on his return (via Transfermarkt).

Despite his recent struggles at the Camp Nou and the speculation surrounding his future, Romano claimed Spurs are not currently looking at Depay as a realistic option this summer:

“We had some rumours about Tottenham, but I’m told that at the moment it’s not an option they are exploring. So let’s see what happens with Depay, I think it’s a really open situation, but Barcelona will need to sell some players.”

TIF Thoughts on Romano’s comments…

We do wonder what type of role Depay would play at Spurs if the Lilywhites were to go all-in for him and secure his services?

The arrival of Dejan Kulusevski has nailed down Antonio Conte’s front three in the starting XI with Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn both now playing bit parts in the squad.

As a result, Bergwijn’s time at Spurs appears to be at its conclusion and we do wonder how Depay would differ if he was to join in the summer?

The Dutchman certainly made a bright start to the season and has landed 11 goals in the Spanish top-flight, however, if injuries are an issue, he may struggle to keep the likes of Kulusevski out of the XI on a consistent basis.
