Netherlands striker Memphis Depay could return to the Premier League in January, two years after leaving Manchester United for Lyon.
Memphis, 25, was known for his uninspiring performances during his time at the Theatre of Dreams and he was eventually released by the Premier League giants in 2017 after reaching an agreement with Ligue 1 side Lyon.
The Dutchman has been in an awe-inspiring form since his move to the French League and he has become a mainstay in Ronald Koeman’s Netherlands national team.
His quick return to form has attracted Mauricio Pochettino’s attention and the manager is reportedly ready to lure him to the Tottenham Stadium in January.

The Argentina tactician sent his scouts to run the rule over the striker during Lyon’s Champions League game against Benfica, and he is impressed with the feedback from his scouts.
According to The Mirror, Tottenham are likely to meet Lyon’s £50m price tag on the player’s signature as soon as the January transfer window commences.
The same source also revealed that the Red Devils stand a chance to re-sign the star striker based on the buy-back clause inserted in their transfer agreement with Lyon in 2017.
Meanwhile, the North London club are also said to be keeping a close watch on Depay’s teammate Moussa Dembele, who is one of Solskjaer’s prime targets in the upcoming transaction period.
