Man United will be featuring in the Europa League in the next campaign. Still, reports suggest that the Red Devils believe they can attract top quality players in the summer.
United need major reinforcements in the transfer window and as far as the attack is concerned, they are linked with Lille’s Nicolas Pepe.
Last month, The Express reported that the Old Trafford club have joined the race to hire the services of the Ivorian international, who is valued at £60million.
Now, Mirror Sport have claimed that Man Utd are weighing up a £45million bid for the 23-year-old star, moreover, the PL club are assured they would beat competition (from PSG & Arsenal) and secure his signing.

The African attacker has been in red hot form for the Ligue 1 club this season. So far, in 39 games (all competitions), he has directly contributed in no fewer than 33 goals (21 goals and 12 assists)
To be honest, if United do actually beat PSG (who offer Champions League football) to lure Pepe then it would be a huge coup for Solskjaer.
