Liverpool fans say signing Nicolas Pepe is a risk worth taking

Liverpool fans have been discussing Nicolas Pepe at Arsenal and have said that signing him is a risk worth taking given Jurgen Klopp’s track record with forwards.

The Reds were interested in signing him back in 2019 and a claim was even made that Liverpool offered him £2.7m/year to join the club and offered £70.9m to Lille.

Arsenal wound up signing him for £72m and since then, his quality hasn’t been on display as regularly as it was in Ligue 1 and Football.London have published an opinion piece stating that Arsenal should sell Pepe if they receive a £25million offer.

Signing Pepe now would mean he would come in as nothing more than a squad player. Mohamed Salah isn’t just the best right-wing in the world but he’s also the best player in the world on current form.

With 15 goals and 6 assists, only Lionel Messi could displace him in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI but if Pepe was only to come in as his understudy, the Reds’ attacking depth would receive a huge boost.

Salah and Sadio Mane aside, Liverpool’s squad lacks world-class dribblers and while Pepe can be a little predictable at times, he has immense quality when running at defenders.

If you were to surround him with quality, he could achieve a lot more than he has at the Emirates.
