Barcelona are set to announce the signature of Lyon attacker Memphis Depay next week, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly putting the finishing touches on a deal for Memphis Depay and are preparing to announce a deal for the Netherlands international next week.

The 27-year-old was in strong form for Lyon during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 22 times and providing 12 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions.

Memphis's contract with his French club is due to expire at the end of June, though, and he continues to be strongly linked with a move to Barcelona.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano recently said that the Dutchman was locked in talks over a switch to Camp Nou, where Ronald Koeman is expected to remain as head coach.

According to Sport, a deal for Memphis is 'virtually sealed', and the attacker has already turned down a more lucrative contact offer from Juventus in order to join the Catalan giants.

The forward, who will represent his country at this summer's European Championships, has scored 76 goals and registered 55 assists in 178 appearances for Lyon in all competitions.
