Lille winger Nicolas Pepe is likely to be on the move this summer, with a host of Premier League clubs keen – and Moussa Sissoko would love to see him at Tottenham Hotspur.

Pepe, 23, joined Lille form Angers back in the summer of 2017, and he has been an absolute sensation with Lile, starting with 14 goals and five assists last term.

This season, the Ivorian winger has taken it up another level, smashing 23 goals and 12 assists in 40 appearances, meaning he's averaging a goal involvement almost every game.

 

Pepe has helped fire Lille back into the Champions League, but whether he's actually still at the club to play in the competition is another matter entirely.

Pepe is being linked with a host of big clubs, with The Mirror recently reporting that Manchester United want to sign him for £45million ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.

The Times noted earlier this season that Arsenal and Tottenham like Pepe too, though the £27million fee mentioned back then won't come close to landing him now.

Now, Tottenham ace Sissoko has been on Canal Football Club in France, and as quoted by Le10 Sport, suggested that he'd like to see Pepe at Spurs.

Sissoko believes Pepe would fit in well in England, believing he is 'really exceptional', and having wished him the best at his new club, Sissoko asked 'why not Tottenham?' when quizzed about the winger's next club, with fans no doubt hoping it happens one way or another.

“I think he has the qualities for England.” said Sissoko. “He has already demonstrated his full potential with Angers, this year he confirmed it with Lille, what he does is really exceptional. I do not know where he'll go, but I wish him the best in his future club, and if it's in England, why not Tottenham?” he added.
