Manchester United reportedly send scouts to watch 23-year-old Lille winger Nicolas Pepe, who has also been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Sevilla and Southampton.

Manchester United have reportedly identified Lille winger Nicolas Pepe as a potential transfer target.

Manager Jose Mourinho is understood to be interested in bolstering his attacking ranks in the wide areas, despite the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial already struggling for game time at the club.

French outlet Telefoot reports that the Portuguese has earmarked Pepe as a possible addition and has sent scouts to watch the 23-year-old in action.

The Ivory Coast international was linked with a move to the likes of Sevilla and Southampton during the summer, and the Saints are understood to have seen a £12.5m bid turned down by Lille.

Arsenal are also thought to be monitoring the forward, and United have now joined the growing list of interested parties.

Pepe has scored 18 goals in 43 appearances for Lille and has three goals in nine outings for Ivory Coast.
