Manchester United transfer news: Red Devils ‘join race’ for £60million-rated Arsenal and Liverpool target Nicolas Pepe

Manchester United have become the latest Premier League club to express interest in Lille superstar Nicolas Pepe, reports claim.

The 23-year-old forward, who has emerged as one of Ligue 1’s brightest stars, has also caught the attention of Arsenal and Liverpool.

Pepe has 20 league goals in France this season

According to the Daily Express, United have identified the Ivorian as a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku, whose future at Old Trafford looks increasingly uncertain.

Lukaku is expected to follow Paul Pogba out of the Old Trafford exit door this summer, with Juventus and Inter Milan both reportedly keen on luring the striker to Italy.

Pepe has taken Ligue 1 by storm this season, with only Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe ahead of him in the goalscoring charts.
