Both Liverpool and Everton have been linked with Lyon forward Depay this summer.
However, L’Equipe claim that the Toffees’ interest is at a far more advanced stage.
Depay, though, does not want to move to Goodison Park at this moment in time, according to the reports in France.
And Liverpool fans have taken the opportunity to poke fun at their Merseyside rivals.

Depay would almost certainly make a good addition to Everton’s side as they hunt a striker.
The Toffees have lacked a goalscorer, and Depay could help to fill that void.
If Liverpool did make a move for the Dutch international it is more difficult to see him breaking into Jurgen Klopp’s side’s starting line-up, as their attack is more set.
