#1 A proper finisher in the box

Barcelona’s biggest weak point this season has to have been their finishing. Apart from their captain, Messi, no one was scoring goals regularly and with a talented forward lineup of Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele, and Messi, that is a bit troubling. Messi scored 30 goals in the La Liga and Griezmann was the only other player who could manage to reach double figures. They are clearly lacking a player like Luis Suarez who’s sole responsibility will be to put the ball at the back of the net. That is exactly what Depay can provide. He has been phenomenal ever since his exit from Manchester United and he has managed to score 63 goals and provide 45 assists in just 139 games for Lyon. A proper threat in the box is exactly what the Catalans need and his stats show us that he can provide that for Barcelona.
