Nicolas Pepe has had a breakthrough season with Lille in Ligue 1. The Ivorian winger has proved to be an outstanding player and has helped his side qualify for the Champions League next season.

It is no surprise, therefore, that Pepe has been attracting the interest of a number of top clubs, including the likes of Juventus, Arsenal, Manchester City and many more. Speaking after Lille's victory over Angers, Lille coach Christophe Galtier said this about Pepe:

"​He will leave - that's it, that's life, that's football today. Nicolas is wanted by all the biggest clubs in Europe. When I hugged him, I told him to take the time to think, as he always did. He has had a wonderful season, now he has to make the best choice for his career."
