The PSV Eindhoven starlet has been under the close eye of some of Europe’s biggest clubs and Manchester United were reportedly frontrunners for his signature, but Fichajes have reported that Liverpool are willing to pay up to £23.7 million to beat their Premier League rivals to the Dutch winger.
Depay has netted an astonishing 19 goals in 26 Eredivisie appearances this season and it is no surprise big clubs are chasing him.

The 21-year-old Dutch international could however fancy a move to United to work under fellow Dutchman, Louis Van Gaal. Spurs are another side that are keeping tabs and were linked with a move last summer following an impressive showing at the World Cup in Brazil.
Depay could see more regular playing time at the Merseyside club due to United’s attacking depth, but he will also want to be featuring in the top level of European football, and as things stand Liverpool will not be playing in the Champions League next season.
Depay looks likely to be on the move this summer and the battle for his signing could be intense.
