West Ham, Arsenal and Juventus have all enquired about signing Barcelona forward Memphis Depay, according to reports in the Spanish media.
The former Manchester United player is expected to leave the Camp Nou after just one season, with Barca keen to free up their wage bill.
There has been a mixed reaction to the story on Twitter, with some fans believing Depay would be a great addition to the squad, while others feel he won’t be moving to the London Stadium:
Ngl I’d actually love him playing for us

Depay was linked with the Hammers before he made the switch to Barcelona last summer, so it does stand to reason that David Moyes’ side would still be interested, if he is made available for transfer.
However, the 28-year-old will have plenty of other suitors, some of which will probably be able to offer Champions League football. With there also being question marks over him after he failed to make an impression during his last spell in England, you do feel it’s unlikely that the Dutchman will end up at West Ham.
