With five goals and five assists, Nicolas Pepe is currently one of the leading performers in the French Ligue 1.

Transfer Information

We made an offer with Real Madrid, starting with a 5M  bid. They countered with 15M and from there the negotiations began. Eventually we managed to reach an agreement for a 9.5M fee and a 30% of profit from next sale. For a player like Nicolas Pepe this is a fair price to pay. We also tried a bid with Paris Saint-Germain, a league rival. Lille was prepared to sell Pepe for a 10m fee without any clauses.

Pros

Nicolas Pepe is a very speedy player, who has the ability to outrun almost every opponent in the world of Football Manager. His natural position is striker, but he will be more deadly as a right winger in an inside forward role. If you don’t play with wingers, Pepe could be a good second striker who can play alongside a big physical target man.

Cons

Pepe will need to work on his strength (9). This area will need to improve if you want him to perform at a much higher level than Lille OSC. If you decide to play him as a winger, also work on his crossing and passing.
