These four elite European clubs are targeting Nicolas Pépé

The future of Nicolas Pépé looks like being one of the sagas of the summer, with the Lille man attracting interest from all over Europe.

Pépé has been one of the in-form players in Ligue 1 this term, netting 19 and assisting a further 11 goals, in Les Dogues rise to second in the table.

Almost every top side has registered an interest in the Ivory Coast international, and now L’Equipe have given a proper insight into the lay of the land with just a few weeks of the season left to play.

Bayern – the club who have been most heavily linked with the forward – have not made a formal offer as yet.

Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are following the situation and could both make moves over the summer.

But it’s Inter who have thrown their hat in the ring first, making a €70m bid earlier this week.

The player himself is thought to want guaranteed Champions League football next season, and ideally would like to join a team where he can play on the right of a front three.
