Liverpool and Manchester United have been alerted that their target, Nicolas Pepe will 100 per cent leave Lille this summer.
The Reds and their Red Devils rivals are keen on signing Pepe this summer.
Johnson said, “There’s no chance that he will be staying at Lille.
“They know, the coach Christophe Galtier before the season had even finished was saying it.
“It’s 100 per cent, if not greater, that he will be leaving, he will be moving on.
“There will be movement on that front, it wouldn’t surprise me to see him go to the Premier League.
“But there’s a lot of clubs in some of the biggest leagues in Europe who are interested in him.
“PSG were looking at him as well, so I don’t think we can rule out a move to perhaps the likes of Spain or Italy, perhaps even Germany.
“There are Premier League teams looking at him. He has a long list of suitors across Europe.”
