Liverpool FC are considering a potential move to sign former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay, according to a report in France.
French media outlet L’Equipe, as quoted by the Daily Mail, is reporting that the Reds are interested in the Lyon star ahead of the summer transfer window.
The same reports states that Netherlands international Depay is ready to leave the Ligue 1 side following two seasons at Lyon.
According to the same story, the 25-year-old feels ready to prove himself in the Premier League following his underwhelming spell at Manchester United.
Liverpool FC would have to pay around £26m to lure Depay from the French club at the end of the Premier League season, the reports goes on to add.
The French media outlet suggest Liverpool FC are lining up Depay as a potential replacement for Sadio Mane, who has been linked with Real Madrid.
Depay scored seven goals in 53 games in all competitions during a two-season spell at Manchester United after Louis van Gaal signed his compatriot in a £25m fee from Dutch club PSV Eindhoven.
Manchester United sold the Netherlands international to Lyon in 2017 in a cut-price deal.
Depay has 30 goals in 80 games in Ligue 1 since his move to Lyon, although his critics will point out that the Premier League is a superior league.
