Liverpool fans are eager to sign Nicolas Pepe this summer after reports claimed his preferred destination is England.

The update comes after the Anfield club dismissed reports they were discussions to sign the Lille player last week.

Pepe, who has a market value of £58.5m according to Transfermarkt, had a remarkable season in Ligue 1 last term, scoring a magnificent 22 goals and assisting 12 more.

The player is currently with his Ivory Coast national team at the African Cup of Nations, so any imminent news of a move from Lille seems unlikely.

Liverpool supporters are eager to see him at Anfield though, with one fan even suggesting he could be the new Mohamed Salah.
