Lyon to offer Liverpool-linked Memphis Depay a new contract

Memphis Depay has done a great job at Lyon since joining them from Manchester United.

The 25-year-old has scored consistently for the Ligue 1 giants and is a permanent fixture in the Dutch national team too.

Depay has turned his career around after his struggles at Manchester United. He was signed from PSV Eindhoven but left after failing to make a mark at Old Trafford.

An older and more experienced Depay seems to be at his best and the 25-year-old has been linked with Liverpool (h/t Express).

Tottenham and United are also keen on the 25-year-old, however, Lyon are set to offer him a new deal (h/t Express).

The club’s president Jean Michel Aulas confirmed to BeIN Sports a new contract was one the way. However, Aulas added that Depay was still to make a decision on signing it (h/t Express):

“We will make him a contract extension offer because he is an exceptional player.

“He will be the one who will ultimately decide. He is a sweet boy, an interesting man.”

Do Liverpool need more attackers?

The Reds are in a great position in the Premier League and could do with another quality attacker coming in.

Mohamed Salah has had his injury problems this season while we would need to rest players due to our packed schedule.

However,Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri were brought back in the team to face Everton. The pair were excellent in the 5-2 win with both getting on the score sheet.

Shaqiri could be the difference-maker for the remainder of the season. If the Swiss performs at his best we might not need to think of making any signings in January.
