Barcelona target Lille duo Nicolas Pepe, Rafael Leao

Barcelona are among a number of clubs considering moves for Lille’s in-form duo Rafael Leao and Nicolas Pepe, according to reports.

Portuguese forward Leao has netted five goals in his last ten appearances and has seven strikes to his name in Ligue 1 this campaign.

The 19-year-old joined the French club from Sporting CP this summer after having been heavily linked with a number of Europe’s top clubs.

Ivorian winger Pepe has an impressive 16 goals and eight assists in Ligue 1 this season, having also found the back of the net 14 times last season.

Diario Sport cite a report in France Football on the Blaugrana’s interest in the duo and used their recent Champions League tie against Olympique Lyonnais to scout the duo in their game against Montpellier.
