Lyon are reportedly planning for the possibility of both Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembele leaving the club in January amid speculation of interest from Barcelona.

Lyon are reportedly preparing for the possibility of both Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembele leaving the club during the January transfer window.

Memphis will be out of contract at the end of this season and is wanted by Barcelona, whose manager Ronald Koeman has made no secret of his desire to bring his compatriot to Camp Nou.

The player himself has publicly hinted at a move in January, when Lyon could look to cash in on their captain rather than losing him for free next summer.

Le 10 Sport reports that the Ligue 1 outfit fear that Dembele could leave too, with Manchester United and West Ham United among the clubs to have been linked with the former Celtic striker.

Lyon have begun to identify possible replacements for the attacking duo, with Reims forward Boulaye Dia and Leicester City outcast Islam Slimani thought to be at the top of their list.

Dia's contract with Reims is due to expire in 2022, while Slimani would be available as a free agent next summer or for a cut-price fee in January.
