Napoli interested in Barcelona striker Memphis Depay

Napoli are interested in Barcelona striker Memphis Depay.

Calciomercato.com says Depay is being eyed up to step in for Lorenzo Insigne as he leaves for Toronto FC in June.

The report adds that there is unlikely to be an issue with the two clubs agreeing a deal, but it will come down to whether Depay is willing to take a pay cut as his currently salary is 'abundantly out of the parameters' of the Serie A side.

It emerged earlier this week that Barcelona will reportedly be ready to sell the Dutch forward this summer just a year after he joined from Lyon.

Depay has scored eight goals in 23 appearances in his debut campaign at the Nou Camp, but has played just twice in the last two months due to injury problems.
