INSIDER: Liverpool now speaking directly with Pepe

Liverpool are now in talks to close a deal with Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe.

The Reds are lining up an €80m deal with Lille for the Ivorian.

And RMC's chief pundit Mohamed Bouhafsi says negotiations have now moved a step forward.

Lille discusses with Liverpool," Bouhafsi replied to a Liverpool fan on Twitter. “Off the record, Lille confirms that. The player is talking to Liverpool.

Liverpool is not all alone on the player. Now we are waiting for his decision."

Bouhafsi broke the news of Fabinho's move to Anfield 12 months ago.
