Liverpool identified 25-year-old Ligue 1 star as top transfer target this summer

Liverpool have reportedly identified Lyon winger Memphis Depay as a potential summer signing.

Jurgen Klopp is well-stocked for options in the final third, but it has been claimed that Sadio Mane could leave Anfield during the next transfer window.

Liverpool want to keep the Senegal international on Merseyside, but according to L’Equipe, the Premier League leaders have started looking for an alternative.

Klopp is said to be monitoring Depay’s situation at Lyon, with the Netherlands international likely to be keen on a move to a bigger club in the coming months.

The 25-year-old has just over two years remaining on his contract, effectively leaving Lyon to consider offers for the attacker if he has no desire to extend his deal.

Depay has contributed seven goals and 12 assists from 36 outings in Ligue 1 and the Champions League during the current campaign.
