Everton reportedly want to sign the Lille ace this summer.
The 24-year-old was on fire for Lille last term, racking up 23 goals and 12 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions, and he would undoubtedly be a superb addition for Everton.
The Toffees are expected to make a real push for the top six next season, and should they manage to sign someone of Pepe's calibre, they will be in a great position from which to do just that.
The Ivory Coast international possesses blistering pace, and plays with a certain kind of directness that would definitely help add more potency to Everton's attacking play.
The Telegraph claims that Marco Silva wants a left-footed attacker to play out on the right hand side, so Pepe would be perfect for the Toffees.
And some Everton fans reacted to the reports linking the Ivorian with a switch to Goodsion Park this summer...

While it sounds like Neres will likely stick with Ajax for now, would be incredible to bring Pepe/Malcom and Moise Kean— Michael Sheetz (@thesheetztweetz) 10 July 2019

It’s nice to dream— Aaron Smith (@notaaronsmith) 10 July 2019
The upcoming season is huge. Time to get serious about getting real solid talent to boost the squad. Pepe signing would be incredible. But I doubt it'd happen over Liverpool, ManCity or some other CL club.— Deckard Trebuchet (@xianorton) 10 July 2019
