German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are eyeing a big money move for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe according to widespread reports in the media.
Ivorian international Pepe is one of the best young players in European football following his form for French Ligue 1 club Lille.
Several European clubs including North London giants Arsenal are interested in the in-form Pepe.
According to a specific report from BeIN Sports, Bayern Munich are ready to spend as much as £69m on Pepe.
It was revealed that Bayern Munich are backed by Sportswear manufacturing giants Adidas in their quest to sign the aforementioned Pepe.
The proposed transfer would make the Ligue 1 star the most expensive player in the history of Bayern Munich.
He would eclipse the €40m that the Bavarian giants paid to sign French World Cup winner Corentin Tolisso from Lyon.
Lille owner recently revealed that it would take £43m to prise Pepe away from the club.
Nicolas Pepe bursted onto the scene in the last campaign when he scored 14 goals to help Lille escape relegation at the end of last season.
The 23-year-old has scored 17 goals and also provided eight assists for Lille this season with the club in the Champions League places at the moment.
