Lille President Gérard Lopez believes Nicolas Pépé decision will be made by middle of next week

Speaking in an interview with Tuttosport, Lille President Gérard Lopez discussed the future of Ivorian starlet Nicolas Pépé.

“For Pépé, we have received 4 acceptable offers from 4 big clubs. For Leão there are 8 interested clubs, including 4 Italian ones. Napoli have made a bid for Pépé which satisfies our €80m demand… Up to the player now to decide where to go, with the contract offers made by the 4 clubs. Pépé will come back from holiday on Monday & I think he’ll decide in the middle of the week.”

On his preference being a move to PSG:

“I don’t know if that’s true, but I think he needs to discover something other than French football.”
