Barcelona will reportedly prioritise the signing of Lyon forward Memphis Depay having allowed Luis Suarez to move to Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona will reportedly prioritise their pursuit of Lyon forward Memphis Depay over the coming weeks.

While the Catalan giants have been heavily linked with an approach for the Netherlands international, they have been unable to make any additions until reducing their squad numbers.

With Nelson Semedo and Luis Suarez having departed for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Atletico Madrid respectively, signings are expected to be made in the coming weeks.

According to reports in Spain, manager Ronald Koeman is eager to get a deal over the line for Dutch compatriot Depay as soon as possible.

Despite his key-man status at the Groupama Stadium, Depay will be allowed to leave due to just over nine months remaining on his contract.

Lyon are said to be demanding in the region of £28m for the attacker, who has contributed 58 goals from his 142 appearances for the French side.
