English Premier League outfit Liverpool are being linked with a move for French Ligue 1 outfit Lille forward Nicolas Pepe.

Jurgen Klopp team are reported to be desperate for the deal to go through as they have been in contact with Nicolas Pepe and his agent to have the deal sealed for the £70m-rated star.

The 24-year-old was impressive for the Ligue 1 outfit where he scored a total of 23 goals across all competitions and provide eleven assists and that was enough for him to attract interest from the Reds team.

Liverpool are not alone in the case for Nicolas Pepe as Paris Saint Germain, Man United and Arsenal are also interested in helping him up.

Pundits have therefore noted that the coming of the star player will mean sacrificing another for him to be able to find a space and a playing time.

Going by position and form, it is feared that Egyptian international Mohamed Salah would be affected by the coming of Nicolas Pepe.

It is therefore claimed that manager Jurgen Klopp ‘loves’ Nicolas Pepe and he is ready to disrupt the harmonious atmosphere in the Anfield dressing room following the Reds’ Champions League win to accommodate him.
