Barcelona in frame for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe

Lille winger Nicolas Pepe is set to announce his future club next week with Barcelona in the frame, according to Diario Sport.

Ivorian winger Pepe has an impressive 19 goals and 12 assists in Ligue 1 this season, having also found the back of the net 14 times last season.

The report claims Bayern Munich and Chelsea (who are currently appealing a FIFA-imposed transfer ban) are also in the frame for the player.

“My representatives take care of my future, I am focused on Lille for the rest of the season,” Pepe told Canal Football Club last month.

Lille sporting director Luis Campos said in February: “If a really good proposal comes in for Pepe, we have to sell him.”

Pepe has also been linked with a number of English Premier League clubs including Arsenal, Tottenham and Wolves.
