The former Manchester United forward was heavily linked with a move to the Camp Nou in the most recent transfer window, but a deal could not be completed.

Former Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman reportedly remains interested in signing Depay for the Spanish giants, but there have been quotes out of France recently suggesting that Olympique Lyon are not keen on letting the player go in January.

According to Mundo Deportivo, however, Depay is ready to force through a move to the Blaugrana, and following Netherlands' 1-1 draw with Spain on Wednesday night, he dropped a huge hint regarding his intentions.

"Who wouldn't want to play there? It is one of the best teams in the world," he said, according to the Daily Mail.

"Everyone would like to (join Barca), but I'm not thinking about that.

"About Barca, I don't know. The transfer market is not open. I have no head on that.

"I'm trying to do my best, to do good performances to become a better player. There is a lot of speculation about it."

Depay has continued his good form this season, having already bagged five goals for Lyon, while he produced 15 goals and two assists for the Ligue 1 club in the 2019/20 campaign.
