Lyon attacker Memphis Depay is reportedly tilting towards a move to North London club Tottenham Hotspur ahead of other interested teams.
This is according to the publication from the stables of HITC which revealed that Memphis Depay has a close relationship with Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tanguy Ndombele and that could influence his decision.
Ndombele was at Lyon until this summer when he made a club-record move to Tottenham Hotspur.
Memphis Depay has been the star player at Lyon since his move to the French Ligue 1 club from Manchester United in January 2017.
The Dutch international star joined Lyon from Manchester United for £15m with a buyback clause inserted into the transfer.

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to spend as much as £50m on a move for Memphis Depay as pointed out by the Daily Mirror.
The North Londoners have not had the best of seasons.
Spurs are in the second half of the Premier League table and are currently on a winless run of five games.
The 1-1 draw at home to Premier League highflyers Sheffield United was their last game and that took their run to five games without a win.
Sheffield United defender George Baldock canceled out the goal from Spurs forward Son Heung-Min.
