Ronald Koeman has talked about the possibility of signing Memphis Depay in the summer.
The Dutch winger who plays for Lyon has been a subject of interest to Barcelona all summer but the Catalans failed to land their target.
Now Koeman has given another update on what we can expect from Barcelona in January.
“That (a move for Depay) is certainly a possibility. I will try, because I would like to have him here,” he told an interview with Dutch outlet AD, reported via Marca.
“But I cannot estimate now what the financial situation of the club is in January. We will have to wait to see it.
“I do not have the role to decide this, it depends on the club. For me, it is a matter of waiting. We want Memphis because he is a great player and because he has qualities that, in my opinion, we lack, especially in-depth in our attack.”
Barcelona might offer Lyon €20m to take Depay to the Camp Nou toward the beginning of 2021, yet on the off chance that a quick arrangement can’t have concurred, the 26-year old can consent to a pre-contract arrangement with Koeman’s side before the season closes.
