Ronald Koeman describes Memphis Depay as an "excellent player" as the Lyon forward closes in on a deadline-day move to Camp Nou.

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has reiterated his desire to sign Lyon forward Memphis Depay ahead of Monday evening's transfer deadline.

Lyon sporting director Juninho confirmed on Sunday that the Netherlands international has already agreed personal terms with Barca.

Koeman is eager to reunite with the 26-year-old, whom he worked with during his time as Dutch boss, but the clubs need to reach an agreement before tonight's cut-off point for deals to go through.

Speaking to reporters, Koeman said: "We want him to come to Barcelona and he wants to come too. He is an excellent player."

Depay has scored and assisted a combined 75 goals in four seasons with Lyon to revive his career after a disappointing spell with Manchester United.

In other Barcelona transfer news, forward Ousmane Dembele is believed to have missed training on Monday amid loan interest from Man Utd.
