Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan have previously made a €70m bid for Nicolas Pepe and newly crowned European champions Liverpool are ready to offer more than Nerazzurri in their quest to sign the Ivorian international player.
Apart from Liverpool and Inter Milan, Nicolas Pepe has been linked with other major European clubs like Spanish champions Barcelona, French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Arsenal.
The Gunners were strongly linked with the player during the January transfer window but the lack of finance meant that they were unable to do a deal for him.
