Barcelona have reportedly agreed a £28m deal to sign Lyon winger Memphis Depay.
Ronald Koeman has been interested in signing the 26-year-old, who he knows very well from his time coaching the Netherlands national team.
Depay is set to travel to Barcelona in the coming days to complete a medical, and it is hoped the winger will be presented as a Barca player this week.
It could mean that Depay might be available for the Spanish side’s opening game of the LaLiga campaign, which will take place on September 27 against Villarreal.
Koeman has only recently been appointed as manager of Barca, taking over former coach Quique Setien.
They are hoping to bounce back strong after a disappointing season where they lost the LaLiga title to Real Madrid, and were humiliated in their Champions League exit after an 8-2 defeat to Bayern.
Depay signed for Lyon in January 2017 after a disastrous spell at Manchester United who he joined in the summer of 2015 for around £25m.
Manchester United had a buy-back and sell-on clauses included in the deal when Depay signed for the French side Lyon for around £17million, but the Red devils are not interested in the player.
