Bayern Munich overtake Arsenal, Chelsea in race for Pepe

Bayern Munich are in poll position to sign Nicolas Pepe from Lille.

The talented winger is sought after by the top clubs around Europe, including Arsenal and Chelsea, after his scintillating displays in Ligue 1.

According to L'Equipe, Bayern have jumped to the head of the queue to sign Pepe.

It is widely known that Bayern wish to replace Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben this summer.

And Pepe would fit the bill, managing 20 goals and 14 assists in 35 matches this season for Lille.

His transfer would cost roughly £70 million.
