Red Devils are desperate to sign €40m-rated prolific Ligue 1 attacker

Red Devils are eager to sign Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe and ready to compete with Arsenal, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Barcelona for the footballer. Man United have problems in the front-line as Jesse Lingard is in terrible form, Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial linked with several clubs and they need back-up.

Ivory Coast international is the perfect choice in this situation as he has an impressive season and paid attention. Solskjær will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Gunners, Blues, Bavarians, Reds and Blaugrana also preparing to make an offer during the transfer window.

Pepe joined the French club from Angers in 2017 with a €10m deal. He became a crucial figure for the club and scored many vital goals since joining. In this campaign, Nicolas already played 40 matches, scored 21 goals and made 12 assists in all competition. It is a fantastic result, and he can do much more with high-class teammates.

Ivorian winger has contracted with the Les Dogues until 2022, and his release clause is nearly €40m. His price could increase and become much more during this season. The 23-year-old attacker is a regular member of the national team which is already a significant achievement for the footballer.

He also helped Lille to finish this tournament in a third place and got the Champions League ticket. Red Devils heavily linked with Sporting superstar Bruno Fernandes, Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, Benfica attacker Joao Felix and Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt.
