Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admits he's eager to bring Memphis Depay to the Nou Camp.

Yesterday, Lyon sports director Juninho had insisted no offer had arrived from Barca - or anyone else - for Depay.

But speaking with FOX Sports this morning, Koeman confirmed he was keen on signing the Holland striker, however nothing could happen until Barca were able to sell their fringe players.

Koeman was also asked about the drama around Lionel Messi and the coach explained: "That has passed me reasonably well.

"That was mainly a conflict between Messi and the club. I have spoken to Messi since then and we will continue with each other."
