Former Man United Winger Posts Cryptic Message Amid Liverpool Interest: Should Klopp Move In?

In a recent post on Instagram, Olympique Lyonnais winger Memphis Depay posted a cryptic video which saw the player boarding a private jet with the caption, ‘Merci Lyon’ (via the Daily Mail). Mercato 365 had earlier claimed that Liverpool are keeping tabs on the Netherlands international ahead of a potential move in the summer.

Manchester Evening News has also weighed in on the subject by stating that Lyon are willing to part ways with their prized asset in this off-season.

Depay’s Marvellous Campaign For Lyon

The 25-year-old has enjoyed another productive season at the French club after putting in a series of outstanding performances under Bruno Génésio’s tutelage during this campaign. Depay has featured in 46 matches for Lyon this term, finding the back of the net on 12 occasions while providing 15 assists across all competitions. He has also represented the Netherlands in 46 international matches and has scored 16 goals for them thus far.

His brilliant contributions on the pitch have helped Lyon claim a strong 3rd placed finish in the Ligue 1 standings. However, a change in scenery might be the ideal move for him at this point in his career as he needs to win trophies if he wants to leave a lasting legacy in football.

Can The Dutch International Redeem Himself At Liverpool?

Depay has all the skillset required to feature for a big club like Liverpool. However, his last spell in England was for Manchester United where he failed to prove his worth which has seen his reputation take a hit. Since his nightmare spell at Old Trafford, the Dutch speedster has bounced back during his time at the Lyon Olympic Stadium.

At 25, Depay is currently playing at his peak which the Merseyside outfit could look to benefit from over the next few years. Liverpool could be the perfect destination for the Dutch wide man as he will be able to link up with his international teammates, Georginio Wijnaldum and Virgil Van Dijk. 

Should The Reds Go For Depay This Summer?

The Lyon ace boasts decent pace and can dribble with the ball at high speed to cause havoc for the opposition defenders. Furthermore, he has added goals and assists to his game during his spell in the Ligue 1. Hence, Klopp should undoubtedly consider recruiting Depay this summer as the player has enough motivation to succeed and win some trophies for the Reds in the coming years.
