Liverpool are looking to table a massive offer to land Lille star Nicolas Pepe this summer, according to the reports from England
Although the Champions League holders already have a devastating attack on their books, Jurgen Klopp is eager to bolster his offensive options as he looks to guide the Reds to their first Premier League title in 30 years.
The Merseysiders have been monitoring Pepe’s development for quite a while and are now ready to accelerate the deal and beat the fierce competition from Arsenal and Inter Milan.
As reported by the British outlet, Daily Star, Liverpool are ready to meet Lille’s £70million demand as they hope to wrap up the deal sooner rather than later.
The 24-year-old has enjoyed an outstanding season in Ligue 1, netting 22 goals and contributing 11 assists, which has made him one of the hottest prospects in Europe.
Les Dogues have already reconciled with the fact they won’t be able to keep hold of their standout performer and are looking to maximize the profit from his summer sale.
Meanwhile, Pepe’s potential arrival at Anfield could be closely related to Mohamed Salah’s departure, with the Egyptian superstar ended up in the crosshairs of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
