Memphis Depay journey

Kopites will obviously remember Memphis Depay for his time with Man United.

The Red Devils signed the Dutch forward in 2015 for £31m.

It’s safe to say that his time in Manchester wasn’t a success.

Depay netted just seven goals in 53 appearances for the Red Devils before he was sold to Lyon after just a couple of seasons.

Hitting his best form

26-year-old Depay is now hitting his best form with Lyon.

This term he has netted eight goals and bagged four assists in 12 league starts and four sub appearances.

He has earned himself a WhoScored rating of 7.35 for the season.

Available on the cheap

This summer Depay entered the final year of his contract at Lyon.

There has been repeated links with Barcelona, whereas the Sunday Express linked Liverpool with Memphis Depay last year.

Le10Sport in France have claimed that the French side are willing to let the forward go in January for as little as £4.5m instead of losing him on a free in the summer.

Liverpool should sign Memphis Depay

This could be bargain of the decade right here.

Liverpool should sign Memphis Depay and they shouldn’t think twice.

He is the perfect age; just hitting his best form now he can rotate in and out of the side, providing depth and competition.

The injury to Diogo Jota showed why we need greater numbers up top, what better way to resolve the issue than with a bargain signing like Depay.
