Barcelona have made Memphis Depay their first choice as they look to bolster their attack
Koeman had considered a move for Alexander Isak, but Barcelona deemed the Real Sociedad striker’s release clause of €70million (£64million) to be too expensive.
Depay, who could cost £28million, has also been the subject of interest from AC Milan.

During his time at Lyon Depay has scored 58 goals and provided 43 assists across 142 appearances.
Barcelona are eager to bring in another attacker following the departure of Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid.
Depay’s versatility – he can operate effectively as a striker or on either flank – is hugely appealing to Barcelona.
