Lille owner Gerard Lopez has confirmed that Italian Serie A giants Napoli have made an offer for star player Nicolas Pepe.

According to Goal, the Lille owner revealed that Napoli have made a bid of €80m for the Ivorian international star.

Lopez further stated that the offer has been accepted and that the decision lies with the player.

It was also revealed that Nicolas Pepe has offers from three other clubs.

Pepe has been linked with a move to a lot of Premier League teams this summer from Arsenal to Liverpool to Manchester United.

Recent reports had revealed that Manchester United were closing in on a £70m move for Pepe but Lille owner Gerard Lopez didn’t confirm the identity of the Premier League club.

Nicolas Pepe is almost certain to leave the club this summer with several clubs on his trail.

The 24-year-old was in superb form for Lille during the last campaign and it’s not surprising that a lot of the major European sides want to sign him.

Nicolas Pepe scored 22 goals and also added 11 assists in the league for Lille and that played a crucial role for his team as the former champions finished the season in second place.
