According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, there is nothing concrete between Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona forward Memphis Depay.
The Dutchman has been linked with a move to north London with his game time at Camp Nou limited following the arrivals of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha in the summer.
The 28-year-old has made just three appearances for his club this season, scoring once, while he made five appearances for the Netherlands as they reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
A whole host of clubs have been linked with a January move for the versatile attacker, but Romano has claimed that there is nothing to suggest he will move yet amid the Spurs rumours.
Romano told GiveMeSport: “At the moment, from what I’m told, there are many rumours but nothing concrete, not with Tottenham or with any other club. Everything is so calm around Memphis Depay.”
TIF Thoughts on Depay and Tottenham…
Should Antonio Conte make a move for the former Manchester United attacker, he would be able to cover the entire attacking trio of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski, while he would be useful whilst Richarlison remains injured.
However, given that he would not be a guaranteed starter, we think it is unlikely that he would trade a bench role at Barcelona for one at Spurs. Meanwhile, with reported wages of £170k per week, he is not a cheap option by any means.
Spurs appear more likely to prioritise a defender rather than a forward in January, so although he could prove to be useful, a move for Depay may fall low down the list of necessities for Conte.
