Arsenal make shock decision on the future of record signing Nicolas Pepe

The latest reports suggest that Arsenal Football Club is actively looking to sell Nicolas Pepe, a 28-year-old winger from Ivory Coast. Pepe was loaned to Nice, a team in the French Ligue One, for the 2021/22 season.

Unfortunately, his performance during his time at Nice was underwhelming, as he only managed to score six goals. Consequently, Arsenal does not seem interested in reintegrating him into their main squad.

The Telegraph has indicated that Arsenal is anticipating potential buyers to express their interest within the coming weeks. However, it seems unlikely that Nice will pursue a permanent transfer for Pepe.

After his transfer from Lille to Arsenal in 2019, Nicolas Pepe commanded a club-record fee of £72 million. His first season with the Gunners showed promise, as he managed to score eight goals and provide ten assists. However, his performance in the following season declined, leading to his loan move to Nice.

At present, it is uncertain which clubs may express interest in signing Pepe during the upcoming summer transfer window. Nevertheless, considering his previous success at Lille and his potential as a winger, there could be potential suitors willing to take a gamble on him.

This update may be disheartening for Arsenal fans who were optimistic about Nicolas Pepe’s return from his loan stint, expecting him to bring renewed energy and contribute to the team’s achievements. However, it appears that the club has reached a verdict and is now focusing on the future.

As the transfer window intensifies, it will be intriguing to observe which clubs express interest in acquiring Pepe and the financial offers they put forward for his abilities.

Currently, Arsenal supporters must remain patient and curious about what lies ahead for their talented yet inconsistent winger.
