Memphis Depay will do everything to force a move to Barcelona in January after being left disappointed this month, according to Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.

The Netherlands international was a key target for Barca coach Ronald Koeman as he looked to sign a player capable of playing as a number nine or in supplementary positions in attack, with Luis Suarez having been allowed to leave for Atletico Madrid.

Lyon sporting director Juninho confirmed on Monday that Depay had agreed terms with the Catalans, but no deal was brokered between the clubs before the transfer deadline.

Aulas says Depay is frustrated at not being able to move but believes a January transfer will be possible.

“Ronald Koeman had given Memphis hope,” he told reporters on Wednesday. “I spoke with the president’s right-hand man twice; he told me he couldn’t see how things could happen.

“Today, he [Depay] is disappointed, but not towards Lyon, more towards Barcelona.
