Everton and Spurs battle it out to sign Man Utd’s Memphis Depay

In an exclusive by the Liverpool Echo, it’s reported that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to rival Everton for the signature of Manchester United winger Memphis Depay this January.

What’s the word?

Memphis Depay hasn’t made a single Premier League start for Manchester United this season and his spell in the wilderness could be set to come to an end with two big Premier League clubs in the market to sign him.

The Liverpool Echo are reporting that both Everton and Tottentham Hotspur are looking to add the winger to their attacking plans.

They’re not the only ones with three big European clubs also chasing the Dutch international; Roma, Wolfsburg and Nice.

Everton are in the market for an attacking threat on their left hand side after a horror injury to Yannick Bolasie likely ended his season.

What does he offer?

He may not be getting a game for Mourinho but make no mistake, Depay is still a player who can be effective in the Premier League.

Before his move to Manchester United he was a lethal attacking threat for PSV, scoring an incredible 49 goals in 124 games from the left wing.

He’s a regular for the Netherlands too, making 7 appearances in 2016 alone, scoring 2 goals in the process. Both of those came last month but if he stays at Man United that may become a thing of the past given his lack of game time at club level.

A move to Spurs or Everton would represent a fresh start in the Premier League for a play who always looked destined to make it in England before he arrived.
