Liverpool target Memphis Depay nets direct free-kick in PSV win

The in-demand attacker scored his side’s second before setting up the winner in a 3-2 victory over Excelsior.

With Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers that he is looking for new attackers this summer, the Anfield outfit have been heavily linked with Memphis Depay in recent weeks, with The Express stating he is a major target for the Reds.

The superb attacker played a key role in newly crowned Dutch champions’ PSV Eindhoven’s 3-2 win away to Excelsior on Saturday.

With his side trailing 2-1, Depay stepped up to net this free-kick to tie up the scores.

As the game looked destined for a draw, Depay was on hand to centre this ball, allowing Jurgen Locadia to net an injury time winner for Phillip Cocu’s men.

Depay is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in European football and seems set for a move abroad this summer.

He is the Eredivisie’s top scorer this season with 21 league goals.
