"Daily Sports" stated that Barcelona coach Koeman insisted that the team still needs to bring in a center after Suarez left the team, but if financial conditions ultimately do not allow him, he will respect the club's decision.
Since Suarez, an experienced and efficient striker who has recently left the team to join Atletico, Barcelona coach Koeman made it clear that he hopes to strengthen his position on the front line. It is understood that Depay is the first choice of the Dutch coach.
At the press conference after the game, a reporter asked about Suarez, but Koeman did not answer positively, only stated: "I hope the team can strengthen in this position, because it is always good to have more choices. ."
Since Koeman coached, Barcelona has played 4 games (3 friendly matches and 1 La Liga). In the game against Tarragona, Griezmann served as center. In the last 3 games Koeman chose to let Messi came to the middle, and Griezmann was placed in a different position in the front midfielder or wing in these three games.
"Daily Sports" believes that this also reflects that Coman is still honing his tactics. Perhaps he discovered in recent attempts that the team really needs fresh blood in the frontcourt.
Barcelona has already begun to promote Depay's signings, but Lyon chairman Olas is still an obstacle. He may want to let Depay stay in the team for another season, although Depay can leave the team for free at the end of the season.
