Liverpool are considering making a move for Manchester United misfit Memphis Depay as a replacement for Sadio Mane, according to reports in France.
Depay, who moved to Lyon in 2017 after failing to make his mark at Old Trafford, is ready to leave the club with a host of Premier League sides interested in his services.
According to French publication L’Equipe, Depay believes he can make the step up from Lyon and is ready to prove himself in the English top flight following his disappointing spell at United.

Clubs have been monitoring Depay’s situation closely but Lyon are adamant they will not entertain offers of anything less than £26million.
And L’Equipe claim that Liverpool have shown interest in the 25-year-old Netherlands international in light of Real Madrid’s interest in Liverpool star Mane.
Mane has attracted heavy interest from the European giants thanks to his fine form this season, which has catapulted Liverpool to the top of the Premier League.
The Senegal international has netted 20 times overall in the Premier League and Champions League this season and has very much taken the weight of expectation off Mohamed Salah.
Madrid are looking to bolster their attacking options with star signings in the summer following a tough season, which has seen them knocked out of the Champions League in the last-16 and well off the pace in La Liga.
