Echo writer all but ends idea of Liverpool interest in Nicolas Pepe
It's been rumbling on pretty much since the final whistle of the Champions League final, but the Echo's Dominic King may have put to bed the idea that Liverpool will sign Nicolas Pepe.
He's been set against the move all summer, regularly commenting that it's not going to happen but a comment he made to a - presumably - parody account's Tweet last night should've put the rumours to bed for good.
See the exchange below:
The Ivorian winger has come off the back of his best season in his career and, at the age of 24, looks primed for a big money move to one of Europe's top leagues this summer.
But it's looking very much like that move won't be to Liverpool. There'll be a lot of unhappy YouTube football fans out there today.
