Liverpool tipped to sign Nicolas Pepe, as Jürgen Klopp has lamented his side’s recent run of form on Tuesday, suggesting that they have lost their mojo, and it could be argued that the German boss needs to sign another attacker in January, to keep his front three on their toes.
The Sun is reporting Arsenal are eyeing up a £44 million January move for Lille star , and Liverpool should seriously consider joining the north London club in the race for his services.
The 23-year-old has been on fire for Ligue 1 club this season, racking up eight goals and seven assists in 12 local league matches thus far.
Nicolas Pepe can play anywhere along the front-line, although he is most comfortable when operating in the right-wing role.
He possesses blistering pace and plays with a certain kind of directness that would make him perfectly suited to playing for Jurgen Klopp, what with the German’s intense, swashbuckling playing style
The £44 million price tag for Nicolas Pepe’s would represent excellent value, and the Reds should not hesitate to bring the Ivory Coast attacker to Anfield in winter.
Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are also credited with an interest in the Lille man, however, so the Reds would not have things all their way.
