Everton and Newcastle United are keen on signing Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe, report L’Equipe. The 21-year-old is currently playing at the AFCON and could leave the club in January, with interest in France and England.

SCO Angers hope to get €10m for Pepe, and Everton and Newcastle United could face competition for his signature. Whilst the two English clubs have been linked a few times in the past with Pepe, Liverpool are now being brought into the picture.

Everton could possibly be looking for a wide attacker after the departure of Gerard Deulofeu to AC Milan, whilst Newcastle United could look to bring in players to help him their promotion bid.
