Sevilla chief Monchi in contact with Barcelona striker Memphis Depay

Sevilla are interested in Barcelona striker Memphis Depay.

Sport says Depay’s future could lie at Sevilla, who have intensified the search for a No.9 to help heal their serious problems in front of goal.

Monchi, Sevilla’s sporting director, has already contacted the Dutchman’s entourage to sound out the possible incorporation of the Barça frontman in the January window.

Sevilla hopes to convince Memphis to join them on a free transfer, even though he has a deal with Barça until the end of the season.

Sevilla are willing to meet Memphis’ salary demands, despite the striker wanting €7 million net last summer to accept the offer he had on the table from Juventus.
