President of Ligue 1 outfit Lille, Gerard Lopez, has admitted talks is underway by Liverpool to sign Nicolas Pepe this summer.
The 24-year-old has caught attention from Europe Champions after an impressive 2018/2019 campaign where he recorded 23 goals helping the Ligue 1 club pick a spot in next season’s Champions League.
But it seems the Champions League winners are at the front for his signature.
”I know there have been discussions with the player, not with us as a club.
”Liverpool have players in those positions and I read that maybe there were players who could leave, or not.
”I am not particularly focused on Liverpool. But it is true that there have been discussions with agents,” Lopez told RMC Sport.
