Manchester United reportedly enter the race to sign Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe, who has also been linked with Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Manchester United have reportedly entered the race to sign Lille forward Nicolas Pepe this summer.

Pepe is expected to leave Lille at the end of the campaign having enjoyed a breakthrough season which has seen him score 20 goals and create 11 more across all competitions.

A number of clubs, including Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, have been credited with an interest in the 23-year-old, with Liverpool currently thought to be leading the race for his signature.

However, the Express reports that United have now joined their Premier League rivals in the hunt after he impressed scouts in recent weeks.

The Red Devils are understood to have been keeping tabs on Pepe for a number of months and are now considering a bid for the £60m-rated attacker.

Pepe joined Lille in 2017 and has since scored 34 goals in 73 games for the club, helping them to challenge for a runners-up finish in Ligue 1.
