Barcelona still interested in Georginio Wijnaldum, Memphis Depay deals

Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that he is still interested in bringing Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay to the club.

The Spanish giants were strongly linked with moves for the Liverpool midfielder and Lyon forward during the summer transfer window, but ultimately could not offload enough players to be able to afford either.

Koeman worked alongside both Wijnaldum and Memphis during his time as Netherlands boss, and he has confirmed that he wants at least one of them to join Frenkie de Jong as a fellow Dutchman at Camp Nou.

“Hopefully, we will have a second Dutchman in the squad. Georginio Wijnaldum was on my list [too],” Koeman told NOS.

Wijnaldum and Memphis have both entered the final year of their contracts at their respective clubs and, as things stand, would be available on free transfers next summer.

However, Memphis has already hinted that he could leave Lyon before that if Barcelona revive their interest in January.
