French club holds more talks with Arsenal man over a potential transfer

Arsenal has remained hopeful they will offload Nicolas Pepe in this transfer window, and Nice is pushing to make that happen.

The Ivorian has been a flop in the Premier League since he moved to the Emirates.

In the last two seasons, Mikel Arteta has tried to help him get to his best levels, but he is just not good enough and has to leave.

The Gunners are doing very well without him on their team, and there is little need for him to stay.

A report on The Daily Mail claims Nice has held further talks with the winger’s entourage regarding a transfer to the Ligue 1 side on loan for the rest of this campaign.

Arsenal would prefer to offload the £72million record buy permanently, but there are no clubs willing to sign him.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Pepe has no place in our current squad, and he is blocking us from signing a new and better winger as long as he remains in the group.

We need to offload him, and soon enough. Hopefully, Nice’s interest is genuine. If it is, we must help them make the transfer happen, even if it means paying some of his salary.

  1. We have not yet started playing the tight schedule which will require depth in our squad. Soon the cup games and league games will be upon us, and we can’t start saying we don’t need certain players now…

    1. For Pepe, we do not. He has shown he’s unfortunately not at the level we need and can’t play the type of football Mikel wants. If we get Neto in, and allow marquinhos to keep developing I don’t think we’ll miss Pepe much. Think it’s important to get his wages off the books and move on in the RW position, and then we have three options there.

  2. I do not agree. Pepe has huge qualities. He hasn’t scored less then Saka on average and would certainly quiet all the “smart-brains” out there

    He is ingrained into the team, the others like him, and it’s just not OK to go on an buy to much anyway in one season alone. I do NOT want to see my Arsenal which I’ve supported for+30 years, go and become another Man Shitty club

    For now we have our own produced talents in N’ketiah, Saka, Smith-Rowe, Maitland-Niles etc, but we need more. We need to produce more home grown stars. That’s how to win with pride, -not buy purchasing 10 players a season
