Manchester United contact Lille over Nicolas Pepe – Castles



As per a report from Duncan Castles of the Daily Record, Manchester United have made contact with Lille over the potential summer signing of Nicolas Pepe.
Lille standout
Pepe, a 23-year-old Ivorian winger, has been Ligue 1?s breakout star this season.
The gifted African has notched 20 goals and 11 assists across 36 league outings for Christophe Galtier?s Lille, proving one of the key contributors to Les Dogues? surprise charge to second-place in the French top-flight.
Pepe is noted for his turn of pace, ability to beat defenders, eye for a killer pass and, evidently based on his stellar goal return, penchant for finding the net on a consistent basis.

To this point, all of Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona, PSG and Bayern Munich have been named as suitors of the Lille standout.
Arsenal were even linked with a big-money swoop for Pepe in January:
