FC Barcelona now know what Lille want for their striker Nicolas Pepe, from the Ivory Coast. Gerard Lopez, the president of the French side, spoke on RMC Sport and said the club would sell for "between 50 and 80 million euros".
Lopez knows that Pepe, 23, will leave the club at the end of the season after ensuring he stayed in the winter window despite the offers for him. Bayern Munich and various Premier League clubs asked about the Barca target.
From the start Lopez said Pepe would not go for less than 50 million. A Chinese club offered 80m but the forward did not want to leave as he plans to triumph in European football.
He has a contract until 2022 after joining from Angers for 10m euros. Barca hope the good relationship between Lopez and the sporting director Eric Abidal will help them.
