In-demand Lille star Nicolas Pepe has reportedly turned down a move to Liverpool as he hopes to sign for Bayern Munich this summer
Author of an astonishing season with Les Dogues, the 24-year-old winger has drawn attention upon his burgeoning talent after being involved in 35 goals across all competitions.
Although some recent reports suggested that Liverpool will meet Lille’s £70million valuation of the player, the French-Ivorian seems reluctant to land at Anfield.
According to the British publication, Sports Mole, Pepe is keen on joining the Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich rather than going to the Premier League.
The Bavarians look in need of quality external attackers, with both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery leaving the Allianz Arena this summer.
It is still, however, uncertain whether or not Niko Kovac’s side will be ready to splash out such a high figure to lure the pacey forward away from Ligue 1.
The reigning German champions have already made Manchester City’s Leroy Sane their top priority for the upcoming transfer session, and the contacts with the Citizens have already being made.
