Lyon were open to ridding Memphis Depay to AS Roma on deadline day

L’Équipe reported earlier this week that Ligue 1 side Lyon had been open to negotiate a summer transfer deadline day deal with AS Roma after the Italian side came knocking for Dutch international attacker Memphis Depay.

However, the player in question quickly turned down the proposal, despite OL being open to negotiating Depay’s departure. Les Gones had made contact with multiple possible replacements, the outlet claims, as further proof of OL’s openness to ridding of the Dutchman who has been heavily criticised for his inconsistent performances and supposed attitude problems since he joined the Ligue 1 club from Manchester United in 2017.

Owing to the player’s refusal, Roma moved to conclude the loan signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Arsenal instead.
