first_img PSV and Netherlands winger Memphis Depay 1 Another winger. Just what Tottenham need, right?Aaron Lennon, Andros Townsend and Erik Lamela are three players already vying for a place in the team’s wide areas.However, Memphis Depay, one of the World Cup’s most impressive players, could be bought for around £15m and that is hard to turn down. The rumour is that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to reinforce the flanks and Depay, who scored two goals in four games for the Netherlands in Brazil, is the man to do it.Here’s what the experts had to say about PSV’s 20-year-old sensation…That goal is typical of Memphis. He has a great shot, can dribble like no other. Memphis actually has the total package– Netherlands assistant coach Patrick Kluivert hailed Depay after his goal against Australia at the World CupWhat I like about Memphis is that he picks things up so quickly. What he is doing is very mature for his age. It’s a childhood dream [playing for his country at the World Cup]. We do click well and I really love his beautiful style of play– Netherlands captain and Man United striker Robin van PersieHe has a body of a true athlete, power and flair. I’m not afraid of him losing his head. His drive is huge. I like him a lot– PSV team-mate Stijn SchaarsMemphis is one of the greatest talents of the Netherlands, a very passionate and ambitious guy too. If he continues his development in this way, the club is going to have a lot of fun with him around– PSV technical director Marcel Brandslast_img read more
