‘I’d Take Him’ ’70m Euros? A Bit Too Much IMO’ Liverpool Fans On Twitter Debate Potential Swoop For 19-Goal Ligue One Ace

Liverpool are preparing an offer for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe, according to reports in the French media.

The Ivorian international will likely be sold in the summer with Inter Milan said to have made the first move with a €70m (£60m) bid.

However, Pepe has yet to decide on his future, with the likes Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Bayern Munich also believed to be keen on the prolific wide man.

Fans on Twitter are debating whether the Ivorian would be a good addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad:

Pepe’s record in Ligue One this season has been outstanding. The 23-year-old has scored 19 league goals and provided 11 assists, and he is not a one season wonder either, having hit the back of the net 14 times in all competitions last campaign for Lille.

It remains to be seen, though, if Liverpool would stump up £60m for a winger who would not be guaranteed a place in the front three.
