Arsenal and Manchester United will go head-to-head in the race to snap up Lille star Nicolas Pepe in January, according to reports in France.
The 23-year-old has made a solid start to the season in Ligue 1 and has scored four goals and notched up three assists in the first six league games.
His performances in France have not gone unnoticed with clubs from around Europe beginning to take note of his impressive form.
Pepe, a former target of Newcastle, has admitted he would be open to a potential move to the Premier League and has left the door ajar over a possible January switch.
According to France Football, Manchester United and Arsenal are set to table offers for the Ivory Coast international during the mid-season window in an attempt to lure him to England.
Both Unai Emery and Jose Mourinho see the attacker as the ideal January target and both are confident of thrashing out a deal for the in-demand Lille star.
