Lille forward In Talks With French Ligue 1 club Over Transfer



Nicolas Pepe

Lille forward Nicolas Pepe is said to be in discussion with the French Ligue 1 club over a transfer out of the club when the transfer window reopens this summer.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which claimed that the player’s agent has opened discussions with Lille with several clubs keen to sign the in-form attacker.

Liverpool are one of several clubs interested in a deal for Ivorian international player Pepe.

Apart from the Reds, Arsenal and German champions Bayern Munich are also keen on a transfer for him.

Bavarian giants Bayern Munich are said to be in pole position to sign Nicolas Pepe who has scored 19 league goals for Lille this season.

Only French World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe has scored more than the aforementioned Pepe in the French Ligue 1 as the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) attacker has scored 27 goals.

In addition to his 19 league goals, he’s the highest assist maker in the French top flight this term with 11 assists.

Liverpool have had a very good season as they try to win two major trophies namely the Premier League and the Champions League but that has not stopped the Reds from strengthening their squad with talents like Pepe.
