Atletico Madrid have stepped up their interest in Barcelona forward Memphis Depay as they look to replace Joao Felix and Matheus Cunha, multiple sources have told ESPN.

Memphis, 28, is out of contract in the summer and has made just four appearances in all competitions this season, with Robert Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele, Raphinha, Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres all preferred by Barca coach Xavi Hernandez.

Sources have told ESPN that Atletico have received a positive response from Memphis' camp but negotiations with Barca are not as straightforward.
