Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after a video emerged of Memphis Depay saying thank you to Lyon and boarding a red plane whilst wearing a red suit, strengthening suggestions that he may arrive at Anfield this summer – the Reds had previously scouted the Lyon forward.

Depay hit 12 goals and recorded 15 assists in the 2018/19 campaign, and also proved his versatility by playing as a centre-forward as well as a wide attacker.
Luis Suarez certainly had no qualms about celebrating against his former employers in the video below…
The former Manchester United man is good friends with current Liverpool stars Gini Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk, and if that wasn’t enough to get supporters talking about a summer swoop, Depay’s latest Instagram video has certainly done the trick.
The 25-year-old, a Holland international, would be an ideal target for Jurgen Klopp as he could deputise for both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, as well as centre-forward Roberto Firmino.
However, not every fan thinks a move for the Ligue 1 star would be a good decision, as seen by the mixed responses on Twitter…
I’d love it if we sign Depay as rotational, versatile forward. With 12G+15A for Lyon this season and available for £35m, as well best friends with Gini and Van Dijk, he’ll be a perfect fit and would thrive under Klopp.
It’s a no-brainier for me. pic.twitter.com/SQ32DB2i48

He is too selfish on the ball, not the type our manager likes ??♂️

Depay actually offers legitimate competition, not just rotation, for our attackers.
Would be an unreal option to have.
