According to reports from France Football, Inter will enter the Nicolas Pépé sweepstakes.

The Nerazzurri are readying a €60m bid for the Lille star, however, they will compete with Manchester United, Paris St. Germain, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Sevilla, Schalke, and Lyon amongst others for his services.

However, Lille president Gerard Lopez says they will not conduct business with any other clubs until the end of the season.

“When it comes to Nicolas Pepe and the others, we have closed all doors to any discussion until the second week in May,” he told

“This is so that the team can remain concentrated until the end of the season.”

Lille are eight points clear of Lyon with six games to play for an automatic Champions League place and just defeated PSG 5-1 over the weekend.

Pépé scored the second of Lille’s five goals and contributed a pair of assists to take his totals to 19 goals on the season to go along with his 13 assists.
