The former striker of the Dutch national team, who also has a history of playing in La Liga, wants to transfer his compatriot from Lyon.

Roy Makaay believes that Depay is not a “pure nine”, but can be a perfect and useful option for Barcelona.

Following the selection of Ronald Koeman as Barcelona manager in the summer, it seems that the Lyon striker has become the main target of the La Liga giant. No agreement was reached between the two clubs until the end of the summer transfer window, but Barcelona is keen to sign him.

Roy Makaay, who has a background of playing in the Spanish La Liga with the Tenerife and Deportivo La Coruna, told Radio Marca:

Depay is a very good player, although I don't see him at the level yet that he had before he was injured. ”He's not a pure nine but if he goes to Barca, I'm sure he'll be important because he's got a lot of 

quality

.”

Although Barcelona is looking for different players in the market, they have shown that they have talented players at home. Fati is only 18 years old and has become a key player for Barcelona. Pedri has also shown that he can be an essential player.

 Makaay added: “

I love Ansu Fati, he's showing he's got a really high level for an 18-year-old kid.“I also like Pedri, I didn't know him and if you like football you'll like to see him play. Koeman's showing he'll give the young players a chance

.”
