Tottenham are launching a bid for PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay. The Mirror says reports claim that Spurs have lodged a £17m bid for the winger who had been expected to follow Dutch national team boss Louis Van Gaal to Manchester United.

If successful, the 20-year-old would be Mauricio Pochettino's first signing as Tottenham manager since joining from Southampton.

The youngster's decisive strike in Holland's 3-2 World Cup win over Australia sent a ripple through Europe.

Leaving Depay now likely to be at the centre of a transfer frenzy that could rumble on throughout the summer.
