Nicolas Pepe is one of the most wanted player in transfer market, as several EPL clubs, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in signing Ivory Coast international.
As earlier reported by The Mirror, Red Devils are the latest to enter the race for 24-year-old winger and are ready to pay £70 m for the move. Despite Manchester United’s approach, Liverpool remain one of the favourites to sign Pepe, as Jurgen Klopp is reportedly a big fan of him.
LOSC Lille president Gerard Lopez has spoken up on Pepe’s future and his current situation, as reported by Jeremy Smith (talkSPORT, GFFN).
Lopez has recently hinted that Liverpool representatives have asked for star player, who scored sensational 22 goals and provided 11 assists in Ligue 1 to be included in best XI alongside with Paris-Saint Germain stars.
Lille boss Gerard Lopez has repeated today that "there are big offers and very big clubs" after Nicolas Pepe. But didn't name any of them.
Still find the reporting strangely vague, as if fewer clubs than expected have come through and it's Lille trying to manufacture interest.
