Liverpool prepare shock £8.5m move for Pepe

NEWCASTLE are keen to snap up Angers winger Nicolas Pepe – but Everton and Liverpool are now reportedly shock contenders for his signature.

The Toon have been eyeing the 21-year-old ace who has impressed in Ligue 1 this term.

But their raid on the French outfit could be derailed the Merseyside rivals, according to L’Equipe.

It’s suggested Pepe could be available for just £8.5m.

Everton are in the market for a new winger following Gerard Deulofeu’s departure to AC Milan.

But Liverpool are well stocked with attacking options and would probably view Pepe as a star for the future.

Toon chief Rafa Benitez has been linked with a host of stars as he eyes promotion back to the Premier League.

If Pepe were to quit France for England, he might get more first-team opportunities on Tyneside.

But if either Liverpool or Everton come calling, the lure of immediate top-flight football would undoubtedly be attractive.

Pepe has played 25 games for Angers, scoring one goal.
