Premier League side Arsenal could make a move for Barcelona forward Memphis Depay.

The London club will return to European competition next season and manager Mikel Arteta is keen on getting a new striker.

The uncertainty sorrounding the futures of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah, plus the January exit of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the Camp Nou, means his options are limited

According to reports from Diario Sport, Arteta is tracking the Dutch star, after he slipped down the pecking order for Xavi in 2022.

Depay has netted 12 La Liga goals in his debut campaign in Spain, after joining on a free transfer last summer, but his starting role has been reduced in recent weeks.

Barcelona are still aiming to balance their finances ahead of the 2022/23 season, and €25m offer for Depay would offer a financial boost, if the former Lyon man is motivated by a move to England.
