For two seasons now, Barcelona have been eyeing a move for the Holland international who has been incredible for his club in all competitions.

However, all efforts by Barcelona chiefs to lure Memphis Depay to the Spanish La Liga have been abortive as Lyon have rejected their offers.

According to the report on Caught Offside, Barcelona are this time around ready to do everything possible for them to get the signature of Memphis Depay.

Barcelona are doing this so as for them not to lose Memphis Depay the way they lost Gini Wijnaldum who is said to have agreed deal to join Paris Saint-Germain.

Depay is one of the most sought-after free agents of the summer transfer window, the centre-forward has really established himself as borderline world-class with Lyon and is just 27 years old.

Meanwhile, Barcelona recently completed the signing of Argentine striker Sergio Aguero who left Manchester City after winning the Premier League title last term.
