Barcelona are reportedly confident of wrapping up a move for Lyon forward Memphis Depay before the Netherlands' Euro 2020 campaign.
The Catalan giants have been repeatedly linked with the 27-year-old as he approaches the final few weeks of his Lyon contract.
Depay has been free to sign a pre-contract agreement with Barca since January, but no deal is yet in place.
According to L'Equipe, however, the former Manchester United man is expected to be confirmed as a Barcelona player before the middle of next month.
The Netherlands begin their Euro 2020 campaign against Ukraine in Amsterdam on June 13 and head coach Frank de Boer does not want any distractions.
As well as moving for Depay, Barca are also expected to bring in fellow free agent Eric Garcia from Manchester City.
