Liverpool is keen on improving their squad ahead of the coming season and they are ready to go all out to sign some reinforcements, according to report.

Liverpool is becoming the favourite to land Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe and the Reds are set to rival the likes of Everton, Arsenal and Manchester United for the signature of the Ivorian star.

REPORT: Chelsea turn to Lille for Hazard replacement

According to the report in Le 10, Liverpool has made a formal enquiry about the prolific forward which is a step above other clubs who are craving for his signature.

The Ivorian forward is wanted by a host of sides after the 23-year-old scored 19 times and provided 11 assists in 32 matches.

Pepe is second in the scoring charts to Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe and his form in front of goal has really helped Lille this season.

Liverpool is also worried about Real Madrid interest in Sadio Mane, a move for Pepe could be a direct replacement for the energetic Senegalese attacker if he eventually secures a move to Real Madrid.
