Barcelona are allegedly prepared to include defender Emerson in any deal for Lyon forward Memphis Depay.

Barcelona are allegedly prepared to tempt Lyon into accepting a part-exchange deal for Memphis Depay.

Since the appointment of Ronald Koeman, the Catalan giants have been heavily linked with a move for the Netherlands international.

However, while personal terms are said to be agreed, the two clubs are yet to agree a fee for a player who has less than a year remaining on his contract.

According to reports in Spain, Barcelona are ready to go in a different direction during negotiations by offering Lyon the chance to sign Emerson.

While the 21-year-old enjoyed a strong 2019-20 campaign at Real Betis, the Brazilian is unlikely to break into the Barcelona first team over the next 11 months.

With Lyon having parted ways with two full-backs in recent days, the La Liga outfit are seemingly prepared to reduce their financial outlay on Depay by parting ways with the prospect.

Any deal must be given the green light by Betis, who possess dual ownership of the player.
