The agent of in-demand Lille forward Nicolas Pepe confirms that he is in talks with other clubs amid speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The agent of Lille forward Nicolas Pepe has confirmed that he is in talks with clubs over a possible summer transfer.

Lille president Gerard Lopez recently acknowledged that Pepe is likely to leave the club when the transfer window reopens at the end of this season, and a number of top European outfits are understood to be interested in his services.

Liverpool are the most recent team to have been credited with an interest, while Arsenal are long-term admirers and Chelsea are understood to view the winger as a possible replacement for Eden Hazard.

Bayern Munich are also in the running, and Lopez confirmed that all interested parties still have a chance to sign the £75m-rated Ivory Coast international.

"We are in discussions with clubs. No decision has been taken," agent Samir Khiat told RTL.

"Today, there are no favourites, be it Bayern Munich or another club. Nicolas will not go just anywhere. We have not decided on which league."

Pepe has scored 19 goals and created 11 more in Ligue 1 this season - a tally only Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe can beat.
