Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to mock Everton’s reported interest in Lille forward Nicolas Pepe, who is rated at £58.5m – the same report also states that they are interested in David Neres, Malcom and Bertrand Traore.
The Ivory Coast international is hot property right now after hitting 22 Ligue 1 goals last term for Lille, helping them finish second and earn a place in the Champions League as a result – only Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe scored more with 33.
“It reminds me of a bus seat!” – Watch a damning verdict on Chelsea’s new kit in the video below…
That form has led to heavyweights such as Inter Milan, PSG and the European champions Liverpool being interested in his services.
Perhaps that is why the Liverpool fans on Twitter have found their Merseyside rivals’ interest in Pepe as a source of humour. Realistically, why would he leave to join Everton when he could play Champions League football with his current side or any of the aforementioned clubs interested?
It would certainly be a real statement of intent from the Toffees if they signed Pepe or any one of the other names mentioned, no matter how unlikely it may be.
Let’s see what the Liverpool fans on Twitter think of their rivals’ interest in the 24-year-old and their other ambitious transfer targets…
I’m interested in Kylie Jenner. Would that happen too?

Neres & Pepe? Might as well target Messi & Neymar too. They won’t go to that small tinpot club. ??? they can’t even reach the UEL qualifiers ?

They would ruin their careers by going to Everton. Way too good for them

Every year. Supposedly wanted van Dijk as well back when we were chasing. They are like a jack russell. Think they are a big dog in there heads while everyone else knows different.

Well Liverpool don’t want him according to all English media so instead of Liverpool is an odd thing to write.
And Everton would be his absolute last resort, but a possibility because nobody wants to pay the fee for him. Simply because he’s not worth that amount.
