Bayern Munich are reportedly confident of beating Arsenal to the signature of Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe.
Pepe has been in impressive form for Lille during the 2018-19 campaign, finding the back of the net on 17 occasions and contributing 10 assists in 29 Ligue 1 appearances.
Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move for the Ivory Coast international, who is reportedly valued at £68.8m by the French side.
However, according to beIN Sports, Bayern have now submitted a bid for the winger and are confident of securing his signature ahead of this summer's transfer window.
Pepe has scored 32 times in 70 appearances for Lille since a 2017 move from fellow Ligue 1 club Angers.
