Experienced journalist Mohamed Boufahsi has provided an update on Lille winger Nicolas Pepe.

Mohamed Boufahsi works with French media outlet RMC Sport.

According to him, Liverpool are yet to receive a response on their offer for Pepe.

It was revealed that Liverpool and other interested clubs have made offers for the player and that they are yet to get an answer from the player.

Nicolas Pepe is with the Ivorian national team at the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.

Pepe and Ivory Coast secured a quarterfinal berth earlier this week with the 1-0 win over Mali.

It was revealed that Pepe will make a decision on where his future lies after the ongoing AFCON tournament in Egypt.

Nicolas Pepe has been one of the most sought after player in the current transfer window and he’s likely set prospective clubs back to the tune of £60m to £70m.

The 24-year-old will most likely leave the club as confirmed by his manager Christopher Galtier and club owner Gerard Lopez.

Nicolas Pepe was the second topscorer in the French Ligue 1 last season with 22 goals in 38 games for Lille.

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) forward Kylian Mbappe was the only player that scored more goals.
