Lyon sporting director Juninho says the club has not received any offers for Memphis Depay and Houseem Aouar.

Depay has become a transfer target for FC Barcelona, with reports suggesting the Catalan outfit has agreed personal terms with the Netherlands international. Aouar, too, has been linked with an exit from the club, with Arsenal emerging as a potential destination.

However, no offers have been made for either players, according to Juninho. "For now, there is nothing for these players, we have not received anything for Houssem, we have not received anything for Memphis," the sporting director said.

Juninho also revealed Barca have not even called them to ask the price for Depay. "We have not received anything from Barcelona. Not even a call to ask for the price for Memphis. What I have understood, is that if he stays, he will be happy to help us to have a good season. The players who received offers have already left," he told Telefoot [via Goal].

Meanwhile, Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman admitted they must sell players before they can buy Depay. The former Netherlands gaffer also added the Catalan outfit will start the new season with the same squad they have with them for the pre-season.
