AS Roma are serious in their pursuit of the acquisition of the Barcelona Forward Memphis Depay in January. The Italian club has been in touch for days with both the player’s entourage and the Blaugrana club to try to find a way to materialize the deal, and they hope to strike an agreement.

Mourinho has requested to make a move for the attacker to relieve the goal drought for his team as the season turns towards the decisive moments. The Italian club has already signed a couple of free agents and they believe that the same can be done for bringing the Blaugrana striker to Rome.

The Barcelona board, however, would be asking for about €2 million for the departure of the forward. Although, Roma will only accept the letter of freedom or a six-month loan until the end of the season. There are also problems regarding the financial demands from the player and his entourage, although Roma and the player’s agent are making progress.

The player, currently playing under Louis Van Gaal and representing his country, has already made progress to the quarter-finals of the World Cup. He scored a goal against the USMNT and is one of the most crucial pieces of the Dutch Football team along with Cody Gakpo and his fellow club-level teammate, Frenkie De Jong.

In fact, the board is hopeful that Memphis Depay will depart in the upcoming winter window. A couple of Premier League clubs have also shown interest in the acquisition of the Dutch Forward. The end of the World Cup can open new scenarios in this operation as the saga continues.
