Liverpool fans are eager to sign Nicolas Pepe this summer after reports claimed his preferred destination is England.
African football journalist Sega Diallo reckons the winger wants to plays his football in the Premier League, snubbing interest from Bayern Munich.
The update comes after the Anfield club dismissed reports they were discussions to sign the Lille player last week.

It’s the kind of contribution that suggests he’d be a potent addition to Liverpool’s right flank, even though they are hardly lacking for attacking talent right now.
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.
These fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Tell Pepe that Liverpool needs him. Klopp loves Pepe. Tell him

Pépé will out dribble you, out pace you, and out muscle you. Like what are you really stopping here? Nothing. Guy is a monster. #LFC

There’s no reason why we couldn’t sign bruno and Pepe. 250m in tv rights and 100m for champions leagues and without mentioning player sales
