Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to the Netherlands’ 2-0 win over France, but it’s not one of their own players they’re talking about.
Liverpool fans are desperate for a pacey young striker to provide competition for Roberto Firmino, who has struggled to find his shooting boots so far this season.
The Brazilian international has scored just four times in all competitions, and just once in his last 13 appearances for club and country.
Fans are now eyeing up a move for Memphis Depay, who has gone from strength to strength since leaving Manchester United in 2017.

The Dutch winger has transformed himself into a central striker, racking up the goals and assists for Lyon.
After scoring just seven times in 53 games for the Red Devils, he has racked up 33 goals and 31 assists in 86 Lyon games, and has 11 goals in 42 Netherlands caps.
He absolutely terrorised the French defence on Friday night, and fans think he could give Firmino a run for his money, or even shift the Brazilian back into the number ten position.

I want Memphis Depay. Wijnaldum and Van Dijk would settle him right in. Imagine a Depay winner at Old Trafford as well?

I would buy Memphis Depay and Fekir in January. Depay is a very good player. He’s a Klopp kind player not JM player.#LFC

I’d take Memphis Depay over Fekir because Shaqiri seems to be filling the void.
And yes the Dutch Connection too. #LFC
