North London club Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in a move for Lyon winger Memphis Depay.

According to the Daily Mirror, Spurs are plotting a £50m bid for the in-form Depay.

The Dutch international star has been in sensational form for Lyon this season after netting four goals in four Champions League games.

In addition, Memphis Depay has scored seven goals and one assist in 11 league games.

The 25-year-old has 11 goals and one assist in 15 games for Lyon in all competitions.

Memphis Depay was formerly on the payroll of Premier League giants Manchester United before he was sold to French Ligue 1 club Lyon in January 2017.

The young Dutch attacker had signed for the Red Devils from Dutch Eredivisie giants PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2015.

He went on to be a flop at Manchester United until the winter transfer window in January 2017 when the Dutchman left for Lyon while Jose Mourinho was still the Red Devils manager.

Since the start of the new league season, Tottenham Hotspur have endured a poor season which is in stark contrast to the form of Memphis Depay at Lyon.

Tottenham Hotspur took their winless run to five games in the Premier League following the 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield United.
