Manchester United ‘weighing up’ move for Nicolas Pepe and more transfer gossip

Manchester United are eyeing up a move for Lille forward Nicolas Pepe, according to reports.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be handed significant funds this summer to strengthen his United squad following a dismal campaign that saw United win just two of their last 12 games.

After initially finding a new attacking verve upon Solskjaer‘s appointment the goals eventually dried up and United only found the net five times in their last eight matches, so it’d be no surprise if the Norwegian is looking to add some fire power in the transfer window.

Pepe has had a brilliant season in Ligue 1, with his 20 league goals helping to rocket his side from surviving relegation by a single point last season to finishing second behind only Paris Saint-Germain in this campaign.

Only PSG’s Kylian Mbappe has more goals in the French top division this season than the Ivorian, but he plays out on the flanks rather than as an out-and-out striker.

It’s no surprise that several of Europe’s top clubs are eyeing Pepe and The Mirror reports that he is a ‘target for United, as well as PSG and Arsenal.’

It’s claimed that United have ‘had the player scouted extensively this season’ and are ‘ are weighing up a £45million move.’

Meanwhile, Leicester City are’pushing for a quick deal’ to sign on-loan midfielder Youri Tielemans from Monaco, according to reports.

The Belgian midfielder has shined while on loan for the second half of the season at the King Power and Leicester are said to want him permanently.

However, his form since moving to the Premier League has attracted interest from bigger clubs and, according to  Sky Sports,  United and Tottenham are interested.

The Foxes ‘are wary of getting involved in a bidding war ‘ to sign Tielemans, who is ‘thought to be keen on a permanent move.’

However, it’s reported that Monaco will seek to get ‘the best price’ they can despite wanting to sign Leicester’s Adrien Silva themselves after a successful loan spell in France.
