Nicolas Pepe was one of the best players for Lille this season, who came second in Ligue 1. The attacker sparked the interest of PSG, but also Liverpool's and Everton's with which he could end up in England.

Pepe is a 24 year-old African talent who played 41 matches last season in which he scored 23 goals and gave 12 assists. It was his best season of his career in which he increased his market value to almost 48 million euros. 

That caught the attention of a giant like PSG who are close to receiving a large amount of money if their star, Neymar, finally returns to Barcelona. With his sale, they could sign the Lille striker without any problems

'The Telegraph' assures that Everton and Liverpool are also interested in buying the player. The media outlet adds that the Reds were the first to ask about him according to the Lille president, Gerard Lopez. 

The Toffees are considering him because their coach, Marco Silva, likes the player. That said, his price is too high for the club so Everton may prefer to wait for Malcom, who is close to leaving Barca.
