Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman would prefer the club to sign Memphis Depay over Sergio Aguero this summer.

Aguero is set to end his 10-year stay at Manchester City this summer with City informing the striker this week he will not be offered a new deal.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Inter and Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly all made offers for the Argentine. However, Aguero is keen to join Barcelona and return to La Liga a decade on from leaving Atletico Madrid.

Marca report the Barcelona hierarchy is keen on the move with Aguero set to arrive on a free transfer.

Aguero is also keen to link up with countryman Lionel Messi and Barca feel the arrival of the Man City star could help convince the club captain extend his stay at the Camp Nou beyond the summer.

There are concerns however over Aguero’s salary demands and his recent injury record.

Head coach Koeman would also prefer the club to bring in fellow Dutchman Depay, who is also set to become available on a free transfer with his current deal with Lyon expiring.

Barcelona have been linked with the former Manchester United forward throughout the season after they were unable to finance a move last summer.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta meanwhile has earmarked Erling Haaland as a priority signing this summer.
