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.

Shaq has been out of action for most of the campaign with an injury. However, he was exceptional against the Toffees last night.

Liverpool are an extremely well-run club both on and off the pitch. Driscoll should relish the ability to work with the Reds without having to worry about politics or unrest.

Christie-Davies will now link-up with the Groen en Zwart at their winter training camp in Malta. He is the third Liverpool player to leave on loan this month following Herbie Kane and Rhian Brewster.

The 22-year-old joined Liverpool from Chelsea and made his debut last month in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals against Aston Villa.

Bernd Storck is the manager of Cercle Brugge, who gained promotion to Belgium’s top-flight last season.

The German coach was previously in charge of Royal Excel Mouscron, where Taiwo Awoniyi spent time on loan last season.

Cercle currently have 13 players on loan at the club. The Welshman’s versatility has seen him perform in midfield, on the wing and upfront for the Liverpool Under-23s this season. This could boost his chances of a starting berth.

Cercle are currently bottom of the Belgian top tier, seven points off their closest rivals Waasland-Beveren after taking just 11 from their opening 21 games.
