Liverpool and Barcelona are considering a swap deal for Memphis Depay, which will see Roberto Firmino go in the opposite direction. 

Liverpool were rumoured to be after a host of potential new midfielders throughout the summer transfer window, but the topic of forwards was relatively quiet after the arrival of Darwin Nunez.

However, reports from Spain have suggested that Depay could be of interest to Liverpool.

According to Spanish news outlet Futbol Total, via Fanaticos , Liverpool are considering the possibility of a swap deal for Depay in January, with a Liverpool striker moving in the opposite direction.

It is believed that player could be Roberto Firmino, with talks possibly set to ramp up closer to the January window opening. This is where Depay could come into play, the report says, with both clubs unwilling to lose each player for nothing.

Firmino’s contract is currently set to run out at the end of the season, meaning he could negotiate with other clubs outside England from January onwards. It’s the same situation for Depay at Barca, with his deal at the Nou Camp running until next summer.

It is claimed that with both clubs currently set to lose their respective player for nothing in less than 12 months’ time, a swap deal has been suggested. However, it has been claimed that the “idea is only on paper” at the moment, with no concrete talks taking place as things stand.
