Lille forward Nicolas Pepe has reportedly liked a post on social media regarding a possible move to Liverpool this summer, according to Rush The Kop, cited by the Daily Record.
The Reds fan account tweeted about a rumoured move to Anfield earlier in the week, with the Ivory Coast international thought to be the man behind the account who liked the post.
The report does go on to add that there was no ‘blue tick’ behind the account but insists that the profile was pertaining to be the forward and had thousands of followers.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Merseyside in recent months after his stellar campaign in Ligue 1 and could cost up to £70m.
Pepe found the back of the net 22 times to help Lille to an impressive second-place finish behind Paris Saint-Germain last season, which has seen numerous clubs around Europe tracking the talented forward.
With reports recently claiming the Reds aren’t pursuing a deal for the youngster this summer, the latest news may have come as a surprise to Reds fans, so only time will tell whether or not Pepe will make the move to Liverpool this summer.
Four more forwards Liverpool could target this summer
Celta Vigo’s Gomez has been linked with a move to both West Ham and Tottenham this summer after an impressive campaign in Spain. The 22-year-old has scored 30 goals in La Liga over the past two years and appears to be improving each year.
Pacey RB Leipzig striker Werner would bring a natural goalscoring ability to Anfield and could provide serious competition to the current clinical front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino.
Benfica’s Seferovic would be a cheaper option over Werner and Gomez and could provide the same goalscoring threat following an impressive season in Portugal.
Frankfurt forward Haller enjoyed a successful season in Germany, scoring 20 times in all competitions. The Frenchman would provide Jurgen Klopp with a more powerful option up front.
