Paris Saint-Germain open talks with Lille over a summer move for Nicolas Pepe, according to a report.

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly opened talks with Lille over a summer move for Nicolas Pepe.

Pepe has been in brilliant form for Lille during the 2018-19 campaign - scoring 21 times and contributing 12 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions for the French outfit.

Arsenal have been strongly linked with a swoop for the 23-year-old at the end of the season.

However, according to Yahoo Sport, the Gunners have been dealt a huge blow in the pursuit of the Ivory Coast international with PSG starting talks over a possible £43m swoop.

Lille president Gerard Lopez recently confirmed that Pepe would be leaving his Ligue 1 side this summer, but there is believed to be an asking price of £68.8m.

Bayern Munich have also previously been credited with an interest in the right winger.
