Barcelona eye up move for Lyon star Memphis Depay – reports

New Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman is lining up a move for Olympique Lyonnais attacker Memphis Depay, according to Catalan radio station Rac1.

It is likely to be a summer of huge change at Camp Nou, with only a select group of players set to be retained ahead of next term.

Among those vulnerable to the exit door are the likes of Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho, leaving Koeman with a gap to fill up front.

And he sees his Dutch compatriot as a good potential addition and is mulling over a £36 million move for the former Manchester United winger.

Depay could be looking to move on from Lyon, who did not qualify for Europe next term after the Ligue 1 season was curtailed, despite their impressive run to the Champions League semi-finals.

The 26-year-old did not make the grade after a much-anticipated move to Old Trafford, leaving for his current club after just two years.

The transfer heralded a reversal in his form and he has since established himself as a leading performer in France and his national team, where he worked with Koeman for the last two years.
