Atletico Madrid and Inter start a bidding war for Lille's winger Nicolas Pépé and both offer €90 million
After Bayern and Liverpool and Manchester United race for Ivorian winger Nicolas Pépé, now both Inter and Atletico Madrid join the race to sign the 24 years old.
Calcio Mercato claim that Inter are going all out for Pépé making him their main target with Romelu Lukaku but now even Atletico are targeting the Ivorian and reports say that both teams have offered €90 million.
And according to France Football, The Nerazzurri initially made an offer around €60 million but have now raised that sum by a third to €90 million, including bonuses and other easily attained add-ons.
While Atletico view Pépé as an ideal replacement for Antoine Griezmann who's reportedly joining Barcelona this summer and could be a another good signing after reports claim that the RojeBlancos are close to sign the Portuguese wander-kid Joao Felix.
Nicolas Pépé played 41 matches this season with Lille, scored 23 goals and assisted 12 making him one of the players with remarkable performance this season and undoubtedly a target for big clubs.
