North Macedonia v Netherlands - UEFA Euro 2020: Group C

Barcelona's latest attacking addition, Memphis Depay, has displayed his incredible talent for the footballing world at Euro 2020.

Depay's failed stint with Manchester United now seems a long time ago. The 27-year old has matured into one of the best attackers in the world, capable of creating and goalscoring at a consistent rate. Depay has been Lyon's most important player in recent seasons, and Barcelona have done well to sign him on a free transfer.

The Netherlands international is the national team's superstar attacker. Depay has been utilized as part of the front two alongside Wout Weghorst by manager Frank de Boer at Euro 2020 and the Barcelona-bound attacker has not disappointed. Depay has made three appearances at Euro 2020 so far, scoring two goals and providing an assist.

Italy have been one of the best teams at Euro 2020 so far, and their midfield of Nicolo Barella, Jorginho and Manuel Locatelli has been key to their success at the tournament.

Locatelli, in particular, looks set for a big-money move. The Sassuolo midfielder, who enjoyed a good Serie A season this time around, has impressed for Roberto Mancini's side, with his passing, dribbling and defensive solidity all standing out. He also scored a brace in Italy's second group stage game against Switzerland at Euro 2020.

The 23-year old is unlikely to remain at Sassuolo for long. Juventus are said to be extremely interested in his services, while Manchester City, Arsenal and Real Madrid are all tracking the young talent.
