Barca will announce Memphis Depay signing this week
Memphis Depay could be Barcelona’s next signing, according to De Telegraaf, who report the Catalan club have reached an agreement with the player and his club, Lyon.
The report says the Dutch forward could be announced as Barça’s newest player before the end of the week and could even be presented in the coming days.
New Barça coach Ronald Koeman has asked for the signing of Memphis to bolster his attacking options. The two previously worked together with the Dutch national team.
The deal would be worth around 25 million euros initially — Memphis is into the final year of his contract at Lyon — with another five million in possible add-ons.
Memphis would strengthen an attack that already includes Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, Ansu Fati, Francisco Trinaco and Pedri.
Luis Suarez is also still part of the Barça squad officially, although the club are hopeful of moving him on before the transfer window closes in October.
