Liverpool are one of three teams, Arsenal and Inter Milan the others, who have made a ‘firm bid’ to Lille for forward Nicolas Pepe, according to L’Equipe (via GFFN).
Whilst reports in England have continued to state that the Reds have no interest in the 24-year-old, the story is completely different in France.
The Ivorian star has continued to be linked with Liverpool and reporters on the other side of the English Channel have continued to report that the Reds are interested in him.
Lille do seem willing to let the Ivory Coast international leave at the right price, but there is no word as yet as to the value of the offers made by Arsenal, Inter Milan or Liverpool.
Liverpool’s players and coaching staff are currently in America as part of their pre-season training but it looks like the work to potentially bring in some new recruits is still ongoing back at Melwood.
