Pepe was phenomenal for Lille last season, the Ivorian contributed 33 goals in 38 Ligue 1 appearances.

According to Le10Sport’s report, Jurgen Klopp is a massive admirer of Pepe. At just 24 years of age, Pepe still has lots of room for development and the star could establish himself as one of the best players in his position under Klopp’s guidance.

The versatile attacker would be a wonderful addition to the Reds squad, but fans will be wondering to see how the ace will fit in alongside the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Whilst Pepe is one of the star who is attracting the most attention in this summer’s transfer window, the Liverpool faithful won’t be too keen on losing one of Salah, Mane or Firmino in order to land the ace’s signature.
