One of the most in-demand transfer targets this summer, Lille’s hot-shot forward Nicolas Pepe has been linked with some of the best sides in European football after a stunning campaign in which he scored 23 times.
Reports in recent weeks and months had suggested the frontrunners for the Ivorian’s signature included the likes of Liverpool and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Now, according to a tweet from The Daily Mail’s Dominic King, Liverpool reportedly have “absolutely no interest” in signing Pepe and a deal for the winger will not be happening.

After hearing the latest news on Pepe, Reds fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on the matter and many were seemingly divided over the situation.
Some supporters of the Merseyside club seemed rather pessimistic about the club’s chances of making a significant signing this summer and wondered whether they would be heading into the next campaign with little movement in the transfer market.
Others however felt that Pepe is just not good enough for the club and insisted youngsters like Rhian Brewster and Harry Wilson would get more of a chance in the first-team without the 24-year-old being involved.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:
We have enough in that position- give Wilson and Brewster the chance this year which is hopefully the plan

You may aswell just announce Liverpool have absolutely no interest in kicking on from last year and going a step further to try and catch City and win more trophies.

Apparently not, what a strange transfer strategy. After becoming champions of Europe when our stock is highest as well.

Do we actually have a transfer policy this summer or are we turning into arsenal

We don’t need him anyway. Need backup/rotation for Mane. We already have Mo, Shaq and Wilson in his position.
