Nicolas Pepe heading to the exist door

110

The £72m Arsenal Nicolas Pepe might be heading to the exist door if the club can find a suitable club ready to offer something better.

It was noted that the Ivory Coast international has performed relatively well in the Europa League this season but the winger continue to struggle in the English top club since his arrival from Lille last summer.

Although the Ivorian has already chalked up a solitary goal from eight appearances in the 2020-21 Premier League with a three-game ban for headbutting Leeds United’s Ezgjan Alioski in last weekend’s goalless draw at Elland Road.

It must be noted that Arsenal chiefs is willingly prepared to cut their losses for Pepe and ready to ship out the former Lille man in January.

With Arsenal still looking at placing the player on the transfer market but report also claim that Pepe has given a good account of himself in training, but the Gunners have accepted that forking out £72m for an attacker who was not Premier League-proven was poor business for the club for now.

Based on club report Pepe is contracted to the Gunners until the end of the 2023-24 season before any renewal or transfer can be treated.
