Liverpool fans have reacted to a tweet that Memphis Depay has posted on his Twitter days after it was reported that the Reds had been scouting the Dutchman.
On Tuesday, it was reported by Mercato365 that Liverpool had sent scouts to watch Lyon trio Memphis Depay, Tanguy Ndombele and Houssem Aouar win 3-0 against Marseille.
Fans were thrilled by the idea that the Reds might sign even one of the Lyon triumvirate this summer.
Depay is the most established of the players that Liverpool had their eyes on and for supporters, signing him would be amazing not just because he’s an outstanding player but because of his history in the Premier League.
Having failed at Manchester United, Liverpool fans would be delighted by the opportunity to ridicule their rivals if the Dutchman made the grade at Liverpool.
The Reds are flying high these days while their Manchester rivals are slipping further down the English pecking order.
Major throwback with my brother @GWijnaldum. You’re doing the nation proud Young King!

Depay was involved in 28 goals for Lyon this season and with that kind of record, he would be well placed to succeed at Anfield.
Much like Mohamed Salah with Chelsea, Depay has a major point to prove to the Premier League.
With Klopp, he could show that he really is one of the best forwards in the world.
