Liverpool ‘in contact’ with agent over £70m Man Utd target
Posted On May 31, 2019
Liverpool have “been in contact” with the agent of Lille winger and Manchester United target Nicolas Pepe, according to journalist Duncan Castles.
The Daily Mirror claimed a fortnight ago that Paris Saint-Germain are in negotiations over Pepe, but United are confident of being able to compete for him.
All the reported interest in Pepe comes after the 24-year-old bagged 23 goals for Lille in all competitions this campaign, while he also contributed 11 assists for his team-mates.
And Castles has issued an update on Pepe’s future with Liverpool now understood to be keen on the Ivory Coast international.
“From what I’ve been told, Liverpool have been in contact with Pepe’s agent to discuss a deal, his interest in coming and what is would cost to come. Lille are aware of this and are waiting for a bid,” Castles told The Transfer Window podcast.

“Manchester United have enquired directly to Lille about what the transfer fee would be. PSG also have an interest in Pepe. Lille have been very clear he’s available for sale and the asking price is €80m (£70m).
“They would love to have a bid come in from Liverpool and United to get an auction going.”
