According to the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool ‘have made no contact’ with Lille over a swoop for Nicolas Pepe in this summer’s transfer window.
A recent report claimed that the Reds had already made an offer as they looked to sign the attacker ahead of the 2019-2020 campaign.
However, according to the Liverpool Echo, that is not the case, with Jurgen Klopp’s side yet to hold any talks over a move for Pepe.
One thing is for sure, Lille will face a tough task to keep hold of the 24-year-old this summer when considering how he performed last term.
Indeed, a record of 23 goals and 12 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions showed the Ivory Coast international’s quality.

Liverpool will seemingly not be signing the winger this summer, though, and a number of the Merseyside club’s fans have been on social media reacting to the latest developments – a selection of which can be seen below:
I make of that Klopp and Edwards, FSG are actually very, very, exceeedingly good at what they do. So I care very little about speculation until it becomes news.

£70 million on a player who has had only one great season. We don’t know if he wud be consistent in PL.
Plus we already hv 3 players who can play in right wing – Salah, Shaq & Mane.
Werner wud be the right player as he has consistently been doing really well.

Personally want to go for either: Fekir, Depay or Bruno F from sporting

Probably just managing expectations from fans and/or not attracting extra attention to the deal from other clubs.
Original source was very reliable (Tier 1) I believe (Bouhafsi), but he mentions it’s still early, and it’s up to the player.

Plays same position as Salah, Shaqiri and Wilson. We don’t need him
