Arsenal stand ready to sell record deal to Nicolas Pepe for just £ 25m as they consider signings

Arsenal are poised to sell the record club deal with Nicolas Pepe for just £ 25m as they consider signings but finding a buyer for the winger, who cost £ 72m from Lille in 2019, could be difficult.

  • Arsenal are reportedly ready to sell winger Nicolas Pepe for £ 25m
  • Pepe has struggled for consistency since joining from Lille in 2019 for £ 72million
  • It will be difficult for Arsenal to find buyers for the Ivory Coast international

Arsenal are reportedly ready to sanction Nicolas Pepe’s sale.

The winger joined the Gunners from Lille for £ 72m under Unai Emery in August 2019 and has shown brilliance during his time at the club.

Pepe has struggled for consistency, however, and as reported by Football.London, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is considering letting him go.

Pepe is no longer a regular for Mikel Arteta’s team and the 26-year-old could be sold

Arsenal are reportedly poised to take a significant loss to Pepe and accept £ 25m for the Ivory Coast international but other clubs may not be interested.

Arsenal are reportedly considering joining Dejan Kulusevski from Juventus, with the 21-year-old being able to play as a winger or attacking midfielder.

Pepe ended last season strong, scoring five goals in three league games. He started as a regular on the team this season but has recently lost his spot with Emile Smith Rowe on the left and Bukayo Saka on the right.

In total, Pepe has made 98 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 28 goals while providing 15 assists.

The 26-year-old’s current contract runs until summer 2024, but it remains to be seen whether he will stay with the club until then.

With Arsenal not in Europe this season, Pepe has limited opportunities to play his way back into the team.

Pepe came on Saturday when Ivory Coast beat Mozambique 3-0 in a World Cup qualifier.
