Arsenal target Memphis Depay can reportedly leave Barcelona in the January transfer window. There is also a chance that he could leave the La Liga giants for a small fee.

Hence, the transfer talks are going to accelerate due to the elimination of Netherlands from the World Cup. Therefore, the agent of the forward will talk with Barcelona about his future.


According to reports, Arsenal are monitoring the situation of Barcelona forward Memphis Depay. The report also claims that the La Liga giants are ready to sell him for a small fee in the January transfer. It also claims that they want to get his wages off from the financial books. Hence, they are ready to sell him for a fee of only 1.7 million. The selling of the Dutch forward would make sense for the La Liga giants. They already have Robert Lewandowski and a number of wingers that can play as a striker.

Hence, selling him for a small fee would help them sign some players on a free transfer for the next summer transfer window. The potential sale would also ease some of their financial problems. However, Memphis Depay rejected opportunities to leave in the last summer transfer window. Although, it looks like he is now open to an exit from the La Liga giants. However, Depay wants a move to a team that is currently playing in the European competition. Hence, Arsenal should definitely keep an eye on his situation.


The report also claims that other European and Premier League rivals are keeping an eye on their situation. Tottenham and Chelsea continue to monitor his situation. Whereas, Juventus are also continuing to show their interest since the summer transfer window. This is despite their financial and legal troubles. Their rivals AS Roma have also entered the race to sign him. However, at the moment, the Dutch forward prefers a move to the Premier League.

Hence, Memphis Depay would be a brilliant signing for Arsenal. The Gunners do need to sign a forward in the January transfer window. This is because of the injury to Gabriel Jesus. Hence, the Dutch forward for 1.7 million would be a risk-free signing for Mikel Arteta. This would also enable them to spend the rest of the budget on their priority signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, Chelsea and Tottenham are also attractive options for the Dutch forward. Both the teams can currently offer Champions League football to him next season.

Hence, Arsenal will have strong competition from their league rivals and European rivals for the signing of Memphis Depay. The interest is also set to increase due to his brilliant performances in the World Cup. Hence, there is a chance that Barcelona increase the price tag of the Dutch forward. Therefore, it looks like it might be the end of the journey for Depay with the La Liga giants.
