Italian giants rejects Arsenal’s offer of a swap deal

Arsenal remains keen on signing Dejan Kulusevski and they have proposed a deal to Juventus, but it has been rejected.

Mikel Arteta wants to add the out of favour Swede to his squad and Calciomercato says Arsenal has offered Nicolas Pepe to the Old Lady in exchange.

The report says the offer was made through intermediaries as the Gunners test the waters to see if a deal can be done.

However, Juve needs money to sign Dusan Vlahovic and they want to sell Kulusevski for cash only.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Swapping Pepe for another top talent is simply the best way to get rid of the Ivorian.

Since he joined Arsenal in 2019, Pepe has simply flattered to deceive and the former Lille man has been out of favour under Mikel Arteta.

No club has looked to sign him so far and that suggests that Arsenal might struggle to get rid of the winger.

Kulusevski was in great form at Juve last season, but he doesn’t suit the system of their current manager, Max Allegri.

The Juve manager would be happy to cash in on Kulusevski for the right price so he can sign Vlahovic.

However, it remains unclear if Arsenal will return with a straight cash offer.

    Seems to be the best option, swap Pepe for a player we need.

    Why won’t they reject such proposal!😀 Pepe is not what a good team would want to have, right now. But to be fair with him, I think he covers well for Tomiyasu most times. Only if he can improve the offensive part of his game……..he is just too predictable, an area that needs working on.

    Suppose in your life you made huge financial mistake. Lets suppose you bought a house for a great deal of money – more than you could really afford but you mortgaged yourself up to the hilt to buy it anyway.

    And THEN, you discovered , too late, that it was on a flood plain, and that you could not get house insurance, no matter how hard you tried.

    WHAT would be the sensible thingg to do then?

    Would you accept a much lower offer than you foolishly paid, in order to cut your losses on the problem.

    OR would you wait until the area flooded and your house was ruined and this happened lets say every two years, thus ruining your lives and mental state of mind.

    Which of those two different life philosophies would you choose?

    I know which one I WOULD CHOOSE ; I WOULD CUT MY LOSSES AND LEARN MY LESSON FOR THE FUTURE.

    Pepe is on high wages, but not insane wages apparently. A deal will be hard, but there is hope it can be done. Summer is more likely. Even a loan will do honestly. His value has dropped to such a tremendous degree we are already taking around a 30mill+ loss on the player right now.

    (TRANSLATION _ There will always be a coach who knows what potential Pepe has, but there are always several factors that make a sale or exchange of Pepe problematic! It can be the wrong people who make decisionson sales/buy / exchange where the coach has no power at all !?
    That said, it’s not just black and white when it comes to a football player where sometimes idiots sit to steer the ship while an experienced coach sees it completely differently than what those who decide see who often have no idea other than to earn themselves rich and managed on their career rise !!
    Pepe is a fantastic football player only he has the right people around him who see and know what Pepe is able to accomplish on the football field !!)

    Det vil alltid finnes en trener som vet hvilket potensial Pepe har,men det er alltid flere faktorer som gjør et salg eller bytte av Pepe problematisk !
    Det kan være feile folk som tar avgjørelser av salg/kjøp/bytte hvor treneren ikke har noe som helst makt!?
    Som sagt det er ikke bare svart og hvitt når det handler om en fotball spiller hvor noen ganger idioter sitter å skal liksom styre skuten mens en erfaren trener ser det helt annerledes enn hva de som bestemmer ser som ofte ikke har peiling på noe annet enn å tjene seg selv rik og klarte på sin karriere stige !!
    Pepe er en fantastisk god fotballspiller bare han har de rette folkene rundt seg som ser og vet hva Pepe er i stand til å utrette på fotballbanen!!
