With new manager Ronald Koeman aiming to freshen up the squad after a disappointing 2019/2020 season, Dutch winger Memphis Depay has reportedly landed on the club's radar.

According to La Vanguardia, the club have agreed a €25million deal for the 26-year-old who has already netted a hat-trick for Olympique Lyon this season.

It seems as if the Catalan giants could get their wish after Lyon sporting director Juninho admitted Depay, along with Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembele, could leave in the current transfer window.

"It is not planned to sell Houssem, Memphis and Moussa at the same time,” he told the club’s official website.

“If that happened, we would look for players of the same level on the market. The departure of the three together is not planned. [But] they attract the market.

"There have been clubs in for Houssem for a long time. Moussa? He is a real goalscorer. There are not many options like him in the market.

"Memphis was unfortunately injured. We tried to extend his contract, the president did everything but he did not want to discuss during this period. In a year, he will be free.

“If we lose quality players, and three is almost impossible, [then] we already have names to replace them. Players of the same level.”
