Liverpool FC have made a concrete bid for Lille forward Nicolas Pepe, according to a report in France.

French media outlet Le10Sport, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Merseyside outfit are interested in a deal to sign the Lille winger this summer.

The same article states that the Merseyside outfit have made a bid for the 24-year-old Ivory Coast international but Liverpool FC will face competition from around Europe.

According to the same story, Liverpool FC Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of the Lille forward after his prolific season in Ligue 1.

Pepe scored 22 goals and made 11 assists in 38 games in the French top flight to earn interest from a host of top European clubs after his breakthrough campaign.

Liverpool FC will be eager to improve their squad in the summer ahead of a potential Premier League title challenge next term after the Reds finished a point behind Manchester City last season.
