Nicolas Pépé has been one of the biggest stars in the French League this season. Playing for Lille, the Ivory Coast international has scored 13 goals and given nine assists in 21 appearances.

The main strength of Pépé is his sudden burst of pace and his eye for goal. He likes quick link up play and has the impressive ability to play through balls resulting in goal scoring opportunities.

The Ivorian can also cross the ball from the wide position which would help Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba, who like to get into the box. Pépé has also scored three goals in 10 appearances for his national side Ivory Coast. The winger has a similar style to play to that of Liverpool winger, Sadio Mane.

Pépé has been one of the main reasons why Lille surprisingly are sitting in second place, just below PSG. At Manchester United, Pépé would be ideal to link up with Anthony Martial and Rashford, who like to play short one-touch passes.

Pépé would improve the attack of any side in the world with the potential he has shown and the form he is in. United should target the Ivorian player to bolster their right wing.
