Liverpool held negotiations with €50m-rated Dutch centre-forward

Merseyside club keeping tabs with Lyon attacker Memphis Depay and preparing to make an offer in June when the transfer window opens again. Jurgen Klopp keen to improve the front-line and his primary target is Netherlands international who had a fantastic campaign and proved his worth one more time.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane linked with several clubs and they need back-up. German coach ready to spend big money on the footballer during the summer transfer window.

Man City and Milan are also interested in signing him, and there will be a contest for the player. Depay joined the French club from Man United in 2017 with a £15m deal. He became a real leader of the club and scored many incredible goals since joining.

In this season, Memphis played 47 matches, scored 12 goals and made 16 assists in all competition. It is an impressive consequence, and he can do much more with high-class teammates. Dutch superstar has contracted with the Les Gones until 2021, and his release clause is nearly £50m.

His price could increase and become much more during this summer. The 25-year-old attacker is a regular member of the national team and also helped them to finish the 2014 World Cup in a third place which is already a significant achievement for the player.

Liverpool will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Citizens and Rossoneri also planning to make a bid during the transfer window. Reds heavily linked with RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio, Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala and PSG player Adrien Rabiot.
