World News – GB – Ronald Koeman suggests Barcelona will try to sign Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay again in January



The new Barcelona manager tried to sign the Dutch duo this summer and believes the two can add something to his squad

Ronald Koeman suggested Barcelona try again to sign Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool and Lyon striker Memphis Depay in the January transfer window

Both players were Barca’s main targets during the summer, but Koeman revealed they were unable to sign Wijnadlum because his position was less of a financial priority when they had to first sell a player to sign Depay to stay within La Liga rules

Wijnaldum, in particular, has concluded the last 12 months of his contract at Liverpool and is therefore in a position to speak to foreign clubs from January 1 about a free transfer next summer

Koeman told the Dutch newspaper AD over the weekend: “Our interest in Wijnaldum was distinct [from Lionel Messi’s future] I think our team could use a little depth, especially when we didn’t the ball

« Gini has a great sense of space, he can reach the goal wonderfully from the midfield, he could really add something to the team

« But the financial situation was known to the club, its position was ultimately less of a priority than, for example, the right-back or the forward position

« We wanted Memphis because he is a great player and because he has qualities that we lacked in my opinion: especially depth in our attack »

« Most Barcelona forwards want the ball to rise Memphis can be used as a target, but he can also come in depth He is strong, dynamic and can play both from the center and from the left

« In principle everything was ready, but due to La Liga rules we knew we had to sell a player first. In the end, that didn’t happen Too bad, but Memphis also knew what was the situation

« [Trying to sign him in January] is definitely a possibility, yes I will try, because I would like to have him here But I cannot now estimate what the club’s financial situation is in January »

Messi’s future also remains uncertain despite the player choosing to stay this summer following a prolonged conflict with Barca’s hierarchy with his contract expiring next summer
