Keeping Liverpool Target At Lille Is A Difficult Task



Nicolas Pepe

Lille manager Christopher Galtier is convinced that keeping in-form forward Nicolas Pepe at the club will be a difficult task.

Galtier has no doubt that Lille will find it hard to keep the impressive Pepe at Lille beyond this summer.

Ivorian international star Pepe has been in sensational form for Lille this term and that has led to interests from a lot of major European clubs including Liverpool.

Apart from Premier League title contenders Liverpool, other major clubs keen on the 23-year-old include Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Nicolas Pepe scored a lot of goals last season to help his Lille side escape relegation at the end of last season and he has continued that form into the present campaign.

The Ivorian winger has scored 16 goals and provided eight assists in 26 games played for Lille in the French Ligue 1 this term.

Several clubs have made checks on him during Lille games this season.

Lille manager Galtier expressed his doubts about keeping Nicolas Pepe at the club in his latest interview as monitored by Sport.

Galtier and Lille have overachieved this season buoyed by the goals of the aforementioned Pepe.

Lille are second on the league table behind champions PSG.
