Leeds ready to take unwanted man from Arsenal

Leeds United are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Nicolas Pepe from Arsenal this summer, with the winger having failed for game time in north London.

The Gunners have seen the uprise of Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli in recent seasons, with Pepe the biggest loser of those keen to feature.

He is now believed to be on the lookout for a move away after losing a regular place in the first-team, and Arsenal now seem ready to give up on what was their club record signing just three summer’s ago.

While we were in the hunt for Raphinha’s signature, he now seems set to join Barcelona after an agreement was made between the clubs, and they are now on the lookout for a replacement.

We will likely be keen to take up an offer from the Yorkshire club, with interest in Pepe’s signature seemingly a little low at present, although it remains to be seen if the player would be open to such a move. TeamTalk cites Diario de Sevilla in claiming their interest in our winger however, and I think the move could work out.

I still feel like Pepe will come god wherever he ends up, but he is never going to meet his potential at the Emirates, and now is most certainly the best time for both us and him for a transfer.

Do any of you still believe Pepe could have a future at Arsenal?

  1. I understand Seville is prepared to pay £15 mil for Pepe.

    Still think Pepe will come good, he should get a year extension and loan to Leeds, that could very well be his break out season, also send Tavares to Marseillie immediately

  2. To answer PATRICKS question, it is clear that SOME on here still DO believe Pepe CAN, even after all this time, come good. They blame his failure to achieve on MA!!

    I’d better not say what I think of those peoples opinion, save to say in MASSIVE understatement, that I disagree. That is why I call MYSELF a realist!

  3. Shame he wasn’t given enough chances to show what he could do ,when you look at the players last season who keep on being given chance after chance even when it was obvious their form was below what it should be it comes apparent that the reason wasn’t to do with form but because he wasn’t signed by Arteta himself as we’ve seen with a few others over the last season or so .
    A complete waste of talent .

    1. Dan, agreed that Pepe was sacrificed on the alter to Willian.
      Pepe has been poorly managed at Arsenal and unfairly treated given his goals and assist record compared to others in the squad.

  4. Leeds should bring our share of raphina money. We Will accept 36 mill plus add on up to 40mill. Pepe can replace raphina for them
