Manchester United linked with Ligue 1 sensation: Just the player Ole needs

Reports: Manchester United Identify African Nicolas Pepe As Main

Manchester United Chasing Inter Target Pepe

Reinforcements are needed at Manchester United as they head into what should be a busy summer at Old Trafford.

Manchester United, Inter and Paris Saint Germain aside, Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Liverpool are all also believed to be interested in signing Pepe, whose departure from Lille this Summer seems inevitable. Despite Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham dropping points again and again, United's dismal performance meant the club finished sixth in the points table.

Reports in the media suggest Manchester United are willing to accept Rabiot's wage demands.

Manchester United are eyeing up moves for Ligue 1 duo Nicolas Pepe and Adrien Rabiot this summer as they look to reinvigorate their squad ahead of the 2019/20 season.

As such, the explosive attacker's stellar form at the Stade Pierre Mauroy has inevitably seen Pepe linked with a number of Europe's top clubs. The Ivory Coast worldwide moved to Lille in 2017 and has impressed for the French club in the two seasons that he has played there, while he has represented Ivory Coast 11 times on the global stage.

The gifted African has notched 20 goals and 11 assists across 36 league outings for Christophe Galtier's Lille, proving one of the key contributors to Les Dogues' surprise charge to second-place in the French top-flight.

The Red Devils could do with more creativity going forward as the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku are being linked with moves away from Old Trafford following disappointing campaigns. It is also reported that Paris Saint Germain are interested in this 23-year-old player.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is mulling over the possibility of signing Adrien Rabiot.
