Memphis Depay is the perfect signing for Liverpool; Edwards should act

Liverpool need to sign a striker this summer. The Reds are in dire need of more firepower up top. Given how tight finances notoriously are at Anfield getting someone in as cheap as possible is the aim. Memphis Depay is therefore the perfect signing for Liverpool, Michael Edwards should act fast to beat Barcelona to his signature.

Liverpool signing a striker

This season exposed how thin the squad is up top.

Our front three have no competition, no cover, no option for rotation.

This means that they are often fatigued and this fatigue churns out poor performances.

The attack wasted dozens of chances during the Reds’ torrid run of form from January to March.

This patch of form confirmed the need for a lethal striker to come in over the summer to fix things.

Memphis Depay perfect for Liverpool

There have been dozens of strikers touted as potential signings but none as affordable as Lyon’s Dutch forward.

Memphis Depay is perfect for Liverpool.

He is 27-years-old and hitting his peak and, most importantly, he’s available on a free transfer with his contract at Lyon expiring this summer.

This season saw the Dutchman net 20 goals in Ligue 1.

Aside from his lethal finishing and electric pace he also boasts a great versatility, able to play anywhere across the front three or in a midfield role if needed.

At the moment the forward appears set to join Barcelona, along with Gini Wijnaldum.

If he is yet to sign on the dotted line then Michael Edwards should get his skates on and try and tempt him into a move to Anfield.

To nab someone like him on a free transfer would be a massive coup, we can’t let Barca bag him unchallenged.
