Manchester United and Liverpool are still in the hunt for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe, according to reports in France.
Pepe is a man in demand after shining for Lille over the past couple of seasons in Ligue 1, scoring 37 goals in 79 appearances, and a move away appears likely this summer.
Pepe has attracted heavy interest from both Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan, with both sides considering lodging a staggering £80million bid for the winger.

But according to French publication La Voix du Nord, Premier League giants United and Liverpool have not given up on making a move for the Ivory Coast international – also a target for PSG – and are still interested in acquiring his services.
And a move to the Premier League would attract Pepe, who has never hidden his desire to play in the English top-flight.
