Liverpool target Nicolas Pepe is hoping to join Paris Saint-Germain despite links to the Reds and Inter Milan, reports say.
Liverpool are among the clubs keen to sign Pepe this transfer window, with the Ivory Coast international enjoying a stunning campaign with Lille.
The 24-year-old scored 23 goals from 41 appearances as the club finished second in the table.
Liverpool have been tipped to lure Pepe to Anfield this transfer window, despite Jürgen Klopp’s side already having Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in attack.
And L’Equipe say that the Reds are still in the running to sign Pepe this summer.
However, Pepe is reportedly hoping PSG join the bidding despite Inter Milan also being one of the clubs keen on a transfer.
He wants the Ligue 1 giants to ‘position themselves’ and appears keen to make the move to the Parc des Princes.
With Neymar’s future uncertain, Thomas Tuchel’s side could make a move for Pepe and make him their replacement for the Brazil international.
Neymar wants to rejoin Barcelona, two years after leaving the Nou Camp in a world-record £200million transfer.
But whether he’s granted his wish is something only time will tell.
