The report claims the Dutchman is nearing a contractual agreement and personal terms with the Blaugrana, although the two clubs are not yet in official talks regarding a move.
It is said that Lyon are not likely to block the forward’s move to the Camp Nou due to the opportunity it represents for his career, while the Ligue 1 club have a price for every player.
The 26-year-old netted 11 goals across his last 18 matches for the Dutch national side and has also developed into the star attacking player at Lyon – netting 53 goals in 136 appearances.
Memphis started his career at PSV Eindhoven but endured a tough stint at Manchester United across 18 months before moving to Lyon in January 2017.
Combing technical expertise with his physicality, Memphis has re-emerged back into one of Europe’s most highly rated attacking players during his time in Ligue 1.
Having recovered from a serious knee injury earlier in the season, Memphis helped lead Lyon to the semi-finals of last season’s Champions League.
He is reportedly high on the agenda of new Blaugrana boss Ronald Koeman.
