The highly-rated Holland international has revealed to The Telegraph that he is excited about playing in the Premier League next season and emulating the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is high on his list of priorities:

“I believe I can be one of the best players in the world and I have to dream and believe to achieve. It is tattooed on my chest.”

Depay has been in superb form this season and has scored 22 league goals in just 29 appearances for PSV as they clinched their first Eredivisie title in seven years. He marked his last home game for the club with a superb free-kick in their 2-0 win Heracles at the weekend.
