Struggling Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for former Manchester United attacker Memphis Depay but that deal is dependent on the Red Devils.

The interest of Tottenham Hotspur in Dutch international Depay was revealed by the Daily Mirror.

It was stated that scouts from the Premier League team were in attendance to run the rule over the 25-year-old during the two Champions League group games against Portuguese champions Benfica.

Spurs scouts were in attendance as Memphis Depay scored the consolation goal for Lyon during the 2-1 defeat to Benfica away from home.

The Dutch international also scored as Lyon got their revenge in the return leg via the 3-1 victory over Portuguese champions Benfica.

Manchester United had a buyback clause inserted in the contract that sanctioned the sale of Memphis Depay to Lyon in January 2017 and will have a say in his next destination.

The Red Devils will have to approve his move to Tottenham Hotspur before the 25-year-old can link up with the North London club.

The ex-Manchester United winger spent just 18 months at the Theatre of Dreams following his £15m transfer from PSV Eindhoven FC of the Netherlands.

He was dubbed the next Cristiano Ronaldo but he didn’t live up to that hype at Manchester United.
