Liverpool are said to have shortlisted Ligue 1 sensation Nicolas Pepe with a view to moving for him this summer.
Le10 Sport claim Jurgen Klopp has been impressed by the Ivorian’s brilliant rise with Lille, and that enquiries have been made.
Pepe has been in scintillating form this term, having had a hand in 30 goals already in the league (19 goals, 11 assists).
He is without doubt one of Europe’s most coveted players at the moment, and a number of clubs have been linked with a move for him this summer.
Arsenal and Bayern Munich are the two clubs who have been mentioned the most, but the pair could now face competition from Liverpool.
Liverpool signing Pepe would be an absolutely huge statement of intent.
Given the sheer amount of reported interest in the winger, actually landing him would send out a big message to the elite clubs across Europe.
Pepe signing would take the Reds’ already potent attack up another level.
It would likely prompt a reshuffle that would see Roberto Firmino drop into a ‘number 10’ role behind Mo Salah, with Mane and the blisteringly fast Pepe on the wings.
That quartet would give Premier League defenders nightmares with their pace and ability to change positions at will.
