Real Madrid reportedly join the race to sign in-demand Lille winger Nicolas Pepe, who has also been linked with Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Real Madrid have reportedly identified in-demand Lille winger Nicolas Pepe as a possible transfer target this summer.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a number of Europe's top clubs as a result of his form this season, which has seen him score 20 goals and create 11 more in just 36 Ligue 1 appearances.

The likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have previously been credited with an interest in Pepe, but more recent reports have claimed that Manchester United are now leading the race.

However, the Daily Mail claims that Real Madrid have now added him to their list of potential targets during what is expected to be a major squad overhaul this summer.

Madrid's top target in that position remains Eden Hazard, but Chelsea's transfer ban has forced them to begin thinking of possible alternatives to the Belgian.

Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been touted as other options, and Pepe is the latest attacker to have been linked with the Spanish giants.

The Ivory Coast international joined Lille in 2017 and has gone on to score 35 goals in 77 appearances for the club across all competitions.
