Tottenham transfer news: Pochettino 'preparing £15m bid' for Depay - reports
Dutch winger is also
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly lining up a £15m offer for PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay.
The 20-year-old made an impact during the World Cup for Louis van Gaal's Netherlands team, rising from the bench to score the winner against Australia and another against Chile as well as adding an assist.
Manchester United are believed to also be interested in Depay, but according to Goal.com, Mauricio Pochettino will make the first move.
Van Gaal has told Depay to stay in the Eredivisie for another season to aid his development. At PSV he will be a first team regular, something that cannot be guaranteed if he were to move to England.
Depay was PSV's star man last term, scoring 14 goals in all competitions for the club.
Speaking at the weekend, Depay told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: "I'm having a good time at PSV but, if big clubs from big leagues come to me, I will think about it. There is more than enough interest but it is also an option to stay at PSV.
"I understand that the fans want me to play in Eindhoven next season. I see a lot of children with my name on their shirt. I'm proud of that but I'm the one who decides how my career looks and no one else."
Spurs have bought three players so far this summer, Michel Vorm and Ben Davies from Swansea and Eric Dier from Sporting Lisbon.
