Nicolas Pepe has opened up himself to a “beautiful summer move”.
“For me, that’s for sure. As the president has already said, my desire is to finish the season at Lille. I am under contract until 2022. My idea is to end this season in Lille and then, why not, leave for somewhere in Europe. It would be beautiful.”. said the player. The 23 year old star who plays for Lille has scored 12 goals is only behind Neymar in the scoring charts. The Ivory Coast star has also added five assists to the list and has helped Lille to the second place in the team.
However, the club are not ready to easily part ways with the player and is ready to charge a significant amount to let go of their asset. “I hope and we will do all we can for him to stay,” Campos told Telefoot last week. “All the good clubs in the world are watching Pepe and that is normal. The president was clear, he wants Pepe to finish the season here. But for me, with my experience in football, I think that if a big club comes with a big offer and is able to convince the player… €80m (£72.45m) is his price.”
