Talks ongoing: Ronald Koeman looks to add two top quality Dutch players to Barcelona

It’s natural for a manger to be linked with players from their home country if they are managing abroad, but Ronald Koeman was also the manager of Holland so you have to think he’ll bring in some Dutch players.

It’s still not clear if Barcelona have the money to go out and make big signings or if they would need to sell some players first, but it looks like things are going well for a couple of signings.

Lyon star Memphis Depay has really kicked on in the past few years and looks like a great option as a number 9, but he could also interchange with Griezmann on the left wing and bring a new element to the attack:

Lyon aren’t in Europe this season and all French teams are suffering financially after the season ended early last year, so he probably won’t cost a crazy amount and he could be a great addition for the future.

The other signing would be Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum, with Sport confirming that the player is happy to move and talks are ongoing between the clubs.

In some ways Barca don’t need another veteran midfielder but the Liverpool man would bring an all-round option which is different to the current squad, so he could still be a quality addition for a couple of seasons.

You have to think that Koeman’s relationship with the players will be key and that may help get the deals over the line, but it’s not clear if either transfer is close at this point.

    The only thing that Koeman has to know FC Barcelona is not Netherlands national team, he has to bring in talented players and still youngsters, if he thinks to still be Netherlands coach, he has to go back and continue with his national team Netherlands,

    I wish Pimientha can be promoted hoping to be a new as it was in 2008

    These two are great players, but not for Barcelona. Koemah should have faith in the players like countihno, Ansu , puig plus the few young talent added to the to make the different this 2020/2021 season.

    Having those young talents from Barcelona B is very good but please see reasons that experience play a vital road in rebuilding a team most especially with the kind of way Barcelona ended up. Gini and Memphis will be Booth for this great club.
