Arsenal, Man Utd scouts (again) watch Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe

Arsenal and Manchester United are maintaining interest in Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe.

The Sun says Pepe, 22, is one of the most wanted men in Europe at present, having attracted interest from a whole host of clubs, including Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

But both Jose Mourinho and Unai Emery hope to make a swoop for the star, who they have been monitoring for several months.

United and Arsenal both sent representatives to watch Pepe in action against Dijon this weekend.

They saw the 22-year-old score from the spot as his side pinched a 2-1 win, their seventh victory of the season.

Lille face defending champions, PSG, next weekend.
