Lyon attacker Memphis Depay will attempt to force a January move to Barcelona, according to a report.

Lyon attacker Memphis Depay is reportedly prepared to force a January move to Barcelona.

The Netherlands international was strongly linked with a switch to Camp Nou over the summer, but the Catalan outfit could not come to an agreement with Lyon over a transfer fee.

Memphis's contract in France is due to expire next June, meaning that as it stands, he will be able to discuss terms with foreign clubs in January over a free transfer.

Barca are thought to be keen to sign the 26-year-old during the winter transfer window, but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas recently suggested that the club are not open to a mid-season sale.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Dutchman does not want to wait until next summer to move to Ronald Koeman's side and will therefore attempt to force a January switch.

The former Manchester United attacker has been in strong form for Les Gones during the 2020-21 campaign, contributing five goals and three assists in 10 Ligue 1 appearances.

Juventus and Roma are also said to be keeping a close eye on developments.
