Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol doesn’t think the Reds should pursue Lille star Nicolas Pepe this summer.

The Ivory Coast international has been heavily linked with a £70million move to Anfield, though Liverpool have revealed they believe such links are nothing more than a transfer ploy to drive up the player’s price tag.

And Nicol thinks the striker isn’t the right fit for his former side anyway.

“I really don’t get this one,” Nicol said, as quoted by the Express.

“Yes he’s had a good season but he just doesn’t look like a Liverpool player to me.

“He’s a little unorthodox, he looks gangly. He has got it done, the stats bear that out.

“Unfortunately it is Ligue 1 and I’m not a huge fan of Ligue 1, I don’t think the standard is particularly great.

“Before the season kicks off we know PSG have won the league. I’m not sure of this.

“I’m not sure where it’s coming from to be honest but I don’t think this guy fits in with Liverpool.”
