Barcelona remain in contact with Lyon attacker Memphis Depay

Barcelona remain in the hunt for Lyon attacker Memphis Depay.

The Holland international is a favouriter of Barca coach Ronald Koeman, who he sees as a replacement for Luis Suarez, after his switch to Atletico Madrid.

Mundo Deportivo says Barca are in regular contact with Depay's minders and assured him Koeman remains keen.

The stumbling block is Lyon's asking price and unwillingness to accept players in Barca's offer.

The Catalans are continuing to seek buyers for fringe players as they attempt to raise funds to meet OL's valuation.
