Arsenal desperate to move on another struggling player after Saudi interest

Arsenal is actively looking to offload Nicolas Pepe in the current transfer window as the Ivorian winger has fallen significantly out of favour at the club. Pepe was Arsenal’s record signing when he joined in 2019, but unfortunately, he has failed to live up to expectations during his time at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta has made efforts to help Pepe improve, but those attempts have not yielded the desired results. Last season, Pepe had a disappointing loan spell at Nice.

CBS Sports reports that Arsenal is determined to remove him from their roster and recently received an enquiry from a club in Saudi Arabia. While no concrete interest has emerged yet, Arsenal is hopeful that Pepe will secure a new club before the transfer window closes, as it is evident that he no longer has a place in their team.

With Arsenal keen to move him on, the next few weeks will be crucial for Pepe as he seeks a fresh start and a new home that will better suit his abilities and help reignite his career.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Signing Pepe is one of the worst use of money we have done in a long time and the attacker deserves to leave the Emirates soon.

His poor form at Nice is the reason no one is coming forward to add him to their squad, but we expect him to find a new home before the window closes.

If that does not happen, the club should consider terminating his contract by mutual consent.

  1. Pepe is still a youngster. He need more time to adjust to the league..

    On a serious note. Pepe seems like such a gental down to earth guy. But he does not seem to have the character / personality to play at the level we are aiming for as a club at the moment.

    He has been around long enough, been sent out on loan but still not improve a single bit..

    Look at ESR, Balogun, Saliba, Guendouzi, Mav, Odegaard etc all been out on loan at a time and they seem to have manned up. Pepe just seems to be too nice an individual. Needs to add a bit of toughness..

  2. Pepe reminds me of Rocky from the movie Rocky 3, when his manager tells Rocky, you are not a bad fighter, you just got civilized. I think Pepe lost that hunger and edge, when he got his huge wages and decided to relax a bit more and enjoy the money. I think he wont take a drop in wages and will be happy to see out his huge money contract from the bench. In his mind, he thinks that he can play anywhere after his contract finnishes, but after being on the bench for a year it will finally dawn on him, that no premiere level team will be interested in him as a liability and a drain to their team. Wake up Pepe, take a wage drop and restart your failing career!

  3. The fact that he was never played on the left wing frustrated me as his predictability as an inverted RW was evident early doors.The guy has a wand of a left foot but lacked the physical determination required to be effective in the EPL.I hope he finds a new Club soon, and I wish him well in his future career.
