Newcastle continue to lead the race for Nicolas Pépé

Premier League side Newcastle United remain in pole position to land Angers SCO attacker Nicolas Pépé, according to regional journalist David Thomas.

Rennes have recently entered the race and the hottest interest from inside France currently emanates from Lille, whose manager Marcelo Bielsa has personally travelled to the Stade Raymond Kopa to watch the Ivorian in action.

Thomas asserts that NUFC and a couple of English sides however lead the way at the time of writing.

Pépé is expected to make a decision on his future in the coming days.
