Nicolas Pepe may be only 23 years old but his performance in front of goal belies his age. The Ivory Coast international is primarily a right winger but can also play at Center-forward.
It was reportedly only Chelsea that were after his services but in the past few weeks have been joined by Liverpool.
How likely is it that the Reds will beat Chelsea to his signature? Depends on how much you want to count on the Ivorian’s words from a couple of seasons ago. In 2017, he professed to only join one English club and it wasn’t Liverpool.
In a French television interview from 2017, this is what Nicolas said:
“It’s the club in England that makes me dream. It’s the only club in England that I would sign for.”

Yeah, but if the Blues get the transfer ban that is waiting them, we might be in with a shout.
