The Ivorian striker can leave the team in the summer.

Lille’s sporting director Luis Campos said that his team wasn’t against selling their current season’s attack leader, Nicolas Pepe, but only if there was a good financial proposal.

Campos admitted that Lille weren’t a rich club. Therefore, the club will agree to a really good offer. Big money will leave the team no choice but to sell the player.

It is known that the Ivorian forward has become a goal for many European clubs. Nicolas Pepe has already scored 16 goals and given 8 assists in the current season.

The media reported about interest from Bayern Munich and PSG previously. Barcelona also express interest in the footballer. However, according to the press, Unai Emery’s Arsenal, who lack speed on the flanks, are the most possible destination for the player.
