According to a report by Spanish outlet Marca, Liverpool are eyeing a summer swoop for Lyon forward Memphis Depay this summer with the former Premier League man out of contract at the end of the season – prompting many Reds supporters to have their say on social media.
The 27-year-old, who has bagged 14 goals and nine assists this campaign across 26 Ligue 1 starts for the French giants (WhoScored), is reportedly at the centre of interest from FSG and Jurgen Klopp with his contract currently set to expire this summer.
Should Liverpool sign Memphis Depay?
Definitely, would be a coup
As a result, Liverpool could potentially land him on a free – but they aren’t the only ones looking into a possible deal for the ex-Manchester United attacker.
Italian giants Juventus are also said to be watching his situation closely, but these supporters in particular appear keen for Liverpool to beat them to the punch.
One Reds fan even called Depay the ‘perfect Firmino replacement’, with the star’s impressive goal record and the fact he’s averaged a solid 2.8 shots and 2.6 key passes per 90 coming as possible evidence of that theory (WhoScored).
