Lille winger Nicolas Pepe is maintaining his focus on the French Ligue 1 club despite transfer rumours linking him with several major European clubs including Arsenal.

The in-form Pepe has been in superb form for the better part of the last two seasons and his quality has not gone unnoticed with the big boys of European football.

Apart from the Gunners, German champions Bayern Munich, Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the Ivorian international player.

He spoke to Canal+ about his future and the aforementioned transfer rumours.

The 23-year-old revealed that his focus is to continue playing well for Lille before adding that his representatives are in charge of transfer issues.

Nicolas Pepe scored 14 goals for Lille in the last campaign as the former French champions escaped relegation from the top flight.

The Ivorian attacker has scored 17 goals and provided eight assists in the French Ligue 1 this season.

His goals have propelled Lille to one of the Champions League places.

Lille are in second position on the French Ligue 1 table at the moment.

Lille owner Gerard Lopez has already warned his potential suitors that they will have to pay at least €50m to sign him this summer.
