Barcelona set to sign Memphis Depay from Lyon.

The Spanish side is said to have agreed a £28m deal to bring Lyon winger Memphis Depay to the Nou Camp.

Ronald Koeman has been keen on signing the 26-year-old, who he knows very well from his time coaching the Dutch national team.

Depay is set to travel to Barcelona in the coming days to complete a medical, and it is hoped he will be presented as a Blaugrana player later in the week.

Koeman has only recently been appointed as manager of Barcelona replacing former coach Quique Setien.

The club is hoping to bounce back strong after a disastrous season where they lost the LaLiga title to their biggest rivals Real Madrid and were humiliated in their Champions League exit following an 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.

Depay joined Lyon in January 2017 after a disastrous spell at Manchester United who he joined in the summer of 2015 for £25m.

Since joining Lyon, Depay has shown much more maturity and has improved from his days at Old Trafford, scoring 57 goals in 140 appearances.

Barcelona begin their league campaign on September 27 against Villareal.
