Lille winger Nicolas Pepe has reportedly made his choice on where he wants to play his club football next season.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Express which claimed that the Lille winger has picked French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) as his next destination.

The 24-year-old is also attracting the interest of other clubs like Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan and newly crowned European champions Liverpool.

Inter Milan had earlier made a bid to sign him, while he was seen as a possible replacement for Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

PSG are yet to make a move for Pepe but the player is said to be hoping for the French champions to enter the race.

The French Ligue 1 giants might still enter the race to sign depending on what happens to star player Neymar.

The Brazilian national team player wants to return to Barcelona after two years with PSG.

His transfer from Barcelona in 2017 made him the most expensive player in the history of world football and the Brazilian forward has scored 51 goals in 58 appearances.

For Nicolas Pepe, the Ivorian winger scored 23 goals in all competitions for Lille last season as he helped them to secure a return to Champions League football via the league.
