Nicolas Pépé has been one of the big disclosures of Tie it 1 this past season. The African has been the best player of a surprising Lille that has remained above the Olympique of Lyon in the classification. Paris Saint-Germain has been the only that has been able to with the ones of Christophe Galtier this course and carried the League with a lot of margin.

But in spite of not winning Tie it 1, Nicolas Pépé has won the right to be one of the big forwards of the competition. It has finish his course with 23 goals in 42 meetings contested, a very high figure that does him be one of the players to take into account in the future. The Lille knows that probably it does not go to be able to retain to the tip and already listens offers by him.

The marfileño finds right now playing the Glass Africa beside his selection, but while his representative negotiates with several clubs. Gerard López, president of the Lille, explained for RMC Sport that has offers of two big groups of the Premier League. It seems that so much the Liverpool like the Manchester United already have asked after the forward.

Words that hint that so much Liverpool like United want to close an agreement with Pépé before heading to a Lille that will ask quite money. The idea of the French is ingresar some 80 million euros by him.

The figure can seem too high and optimist taking into account that only it has played a big season to the maximum level, but with the current market would not be odd that somebody paid it. A similar example that could do that Pépé go out by less is the one of Luka Jovic. In a similar situation, the Real Madrid carried to the Serbian by 60 'kilos'.

The Liverpool looks for another forward

Jürgen Klopp wants that his team keep growing and for this looks for a fourth forward of level that can be an alternative of quality for any one of his offensive trident. Pépé Could play so much in the left as in the right and even could play up with freedom. It is very fast and this would fit very well with the style 'network' and of the germano, with what it will be necessary to be attentive to this movement.
