Lyon attacker Memphis Depay has agreed on a deal with Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona, according to the club’s sporting director Juninho Pernambucano.
This was revealed by Get French Football News (GFFN) amidst the transfer rumours that continue to link the former Manchester United player with a move to the Nou Camp.
Lyon sporting director Juninho Pernambucano said that the club is aware that Memphis Depay has agreed on personal terms with Barcelona and he’s waiting on the club to agree on a transfer fee with his French Ligue 1 side.
Memphis Depay is keen to link up with fellow Dutchman Ronald Koeman at Barcelona.

- Arsenal linked with another Martinez Emiliano replacement
Both parties worked together with the Dutch national team as Ronald Koeman led the orange to the UEFA Nations League final last year.
Memphis Depay was a key player in that run to the final.
Juninho Pernambucano also informed reporters that Memphis Depay is the likeliest player to leave Lyon on transfer deadline day.
Apart from Memphis Depay, Lyon stars like Houssem Aouar and Jeff Reine Adelaide have been linked with moves away from the club.
Houssem Aouar is a strong target for the Gunners but the Premier League giants are finding it difficult to meet his €60m valuation.
Rennes and Hertha Berlin are interested in Adelaide.
