Roma are the team most interested in signing Memphis Depay.
The Dutch striker has entered the last year of his contract with Barcelona and is not playing regularly this season under the orders of coach Xavi Hernandez.
Roma coach Jose Mourinho is interested in strengthening the attacking department and Depay is well liked by the Portuguese.
Roma’s sporting director, Thiago Pinto, has been in constant contact with Barcelona’s leaders and the footballer’s agents over the past few days.
Barcelona wants about five million euros in January to release the Dutch star, while his salary of six million euros per season remains a problem.
However, the contacts between the parties are continuing and Roma remains the favorite before teams like Dortmund, Newcastle United and Everton for the Dutch striker.
This season, the 28-year-old played in only three matches with Barcelona, where he also scored one goal, as he had problems with injuries before the World Cup.
