£70m star prefers joining Chelsea over Inter Milan

Le10 Sport reports that Nicolas Pepe has his fair share of suitors ahead of the summer transfer window and the winger would prefer to join either Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern over a move to Inter this summer

It is suggested that Inter Milan have been heavily linked with a move to sign the Ivory Coast international in recent days, but it appears that a move to San Siro may not appeal all that much to the player himself.

It is being claimed that wages could be a factor in where the 23-year-old is playing his football next year, while Champions League football is also not guaranteed at Italian club.

Chelsea have shortlisted the forward has a potential replacement for departing superstar Eden Hazard, who looks Real Madrid bound later this year.

Nicolas Pepe would be able to earn more money at either of the three sides mentioned above, despite Champions League football also not be a certainty at Stamford Bridge next campaign.

Given Paris Saint-Germain’s dominance in French football, it is no surprise to see him linked with a move to the capital club. However, if he wants to challenge himself across the continent, this may not be the best destination for him, with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar already dominating in Paris.

The other option for Nicolas Pepe is to remain at Lille after such a standout campaign as the Ivorian is helping them towards Champions League qualification while a move to Chelsea also remains as option.
