With Lautaro Martínez as the great option, Depay appeared as the coach’s favorite.

Lautaro Martínez, Inter Milan striker, was the great favorite to go to Barcelona due to the possible departure of Luis Suárez. However, the negotiations were frozen and now it is not known if there will be a signing with him.

Following the arrival of Koeman, current Barcelona coach, two signings have been rumored. One of them is the Dutchman from Ajax Van de Beek, but the other is the figure of Lyon: Memphis Depay.

According to the station ‘Rac1’, the Frenchman would have had the approval of the Dutch coach and could be sought to go to the Catalan team.

The attacker has a contract with Lyon until 2021 and there he would be free, an issue that Barcelona could take advantage of. If they wanted it before, they could pay a sum of no more than 40 million euros.
