‘That’s A Shame’ ‘No Big Signings This Summer’ Liverpool Fans On Social Media Left Disappointed By Reports Dismissing £71m Swoop

Liverpool will not be making a bid for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe, according to reports in the local media.

Claims from France suggested that the Reds were the frontrunners to sign the Ivorian international for €80m (£71m) but as things stand, he is not likely to be moving to Merseyside this summer.

Fans on Twitter were left disappointed by the news:

Although some are still optimistic that a deal for Pepe will still go ahead:

Reporters who have sources close to the club have consistently said that Liverpool are unlikely to be active in the transfer market this summer with Jurgen Klopp happy with the options at his disposal.

However, many supporters feel the club need to kick on so they can displace Manchester City at the top of the table next season.

Pepe’s 23 goals and 12 assists for Lille last campaign means he would add extra firepower to the squad, but currently, it appears Liverpool are not interested.
