United eye Pepe talks

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Sport - BY NEIL FISSLER

MANCH­ESTER UNITED have joined the race for Lille’s £60mil­lion-rated hit man Ni­co­las Pepe.

United have been im­pressed with scout­ing re­ports on Pepe who is ready to leave the Ligue 1 club in the sum­mer.

The Ivory Coast star has scored 20 goals in the French top-flight this sea­son, with only Paris Saint-Ger­main’s Kylian Mbappe scor­ing more.

Pepe is also a tar­get for Liv­er­pool boss Jur­gen Klopp who is ready to make an of­fer.

But they face tough com­pe­ti­tion with Bay­ern Mu­nich, PSG, Chelsea and In­ter Mi­lan all show­ing an in­ter­est.
