Arsenal and Liverpool reportedly both lodge official bids for Lille's Ivorian star Nicolas Pepe, who is also of interest to Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid and Napoli.

Liverpool and Arsenal have both lodged official bids for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe, according to a report.

The 24-year-old is open to a move this summer, and the Premier League duo are both very keen to secure his signature.

According to L'Equipe, Lille are eager to drum up further interest to create a bidding war, with Inter Milan, Napoli and Atletico Madrid also interested in the Ivory Coast international.

The Ligue 1 club are demanding £72m for their star man, which would raise questions as to whether Arsenal could afford him considering their reported £40m summer transfer budget.

Pepe enjoyed a stellar 2018-19 season, scoring 23 goals and laying on a further 12 assists as Lille qualified for the Champions League for the first time in seven years.
