Lille winger Nicolas Pepe reportedly remains a target for Liverpool and Manchester United, despite French side Lille's £80m asking price.

Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United have reportedly not given up on making a move for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe.

The Ivory Coast international has scored 37 goals for the Ligue 1 side over the past couple of seasons to see his name linked with an array of clubs.

Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are both rumoured to be ready to lodge £80m bids, while Chelsea were also linked before their transfer ban kicked in.

Despite Pepe's high asking price, however, French outlet La Voix du Nord reports that Liverpool and United are still in the hunt for the 24-year-old.

Pepe is said to be holding out for a move to English football, which could work in the fierce rivals' favour if they make a formal offer.
