Memphis Depay is heading to Barcelona after the Spanish giants agreed a fee with Olympique Lyon.

De Telegraaf are reporting that Lyon has accepted a €25 million bid from Barcelona, with an extra €5 million to be paid next summer. There will also be an extra €2 million in bonuses.

Ronald Koeman has made Memphis his number one target to improve his attack this summer, and the deal is set to be made official this week.

Memphis was Koeman’s main attacker for the Dutch national team and sees him as the ideal partner for Lionel Messi up front.

The 26-year-old joined Lyon in 2017 after a torrid spell with Manchester United and has since scored 57 times for the French side. The former PSV star now heads to La Liga.
