Report – Turkish club offers Arsenal flop a three-year deal

It appears that Nicolas Pepe’s tenure at Arsenal is drawing to a close in this transfer window, with Besiktas emerging as a potential destination for the winger.

Since his move to Arsenal in 2019, Pepe’s performance has been deemed disappointing, leading to his loan spell at Nice during the previous season. His role in the first team has dwindled significantly, and he is clearly not part of Mikel Arteta’s plans moving forward.

With the managerial transition and a reshuffling of the squad, the management responsible for transfers at Arsenal is faced with the challenge of resolving the situation surrounding Pepe.

Having just a year left on his existing contract, there have been suggestions that Arsenal could potentially allow him to depart without a transfer fee. If this proposition holds true, it’s plausible that Pepe’s departure could materialise swiftly, as reports from RMC Sports indicate that Besiktas has extended a three-year contract offer to him.

Besiktas is eager to provide an escape route from Pepe’s current situation at Arsenal, and they are actively working towards securing an agreement to bring him to their ranks as soon as possible. The Turkish club’s interest signifies their determination to alleviate his predicament and integrate him into their squad.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Pepe has flopped for us since he has been at the club and we can understand why he has to leave.

There is no point in making it difficult for the transfer to go through. If he reaches a full agreement with Besiktas, we must make his exit smooth, even if it means tearing up his contract.

  1. If Pepe forfeits his last year’s wages, then we should let him go. Arteta won’t use him, so very doubtful any team will offer a fee.

    Get him off the wage books and wish him the best elsewhere.

  2. His future club will be paying him a salary , so Arsenal should make a clean cut and let him loose.

  3. I disagree with people who say he is a flop or that his performance was disappointing. The guy played well whenever he was allowed to play. I think there might have been a falling out internally with the coach. It was clear that the coach preferred Saka and hence it could have affected Pepe’s attitude and relationship with the coaching team. He remains a good player with an eye for goals and brilliant foot work

    1. Seriously!!?? Totally unsuited to Prem style football and in particular to the style we demand, which includes consistent hard work and wingers tracking back, something he showed himself totally incapable of being able or willing to do.
      Huge flop!
      Glad he’s on his way out sooner or later, sooner hopefully.

  4. Furthrto the above dont you accept the sensible reasobning that IF he were considered any real use by those within thr game, that someother clubs would at the very least offer us SOME money for him!?

    Not happened though and most of us , even though not you, know why!

  5. He’s not calved out for the premier league, he clearly did have that strong body so badly needed to thrive in the league. He didn’t come to Arsenal as a kid still learning his trade, he came as an established senior pro. His performances quickly dropped, you could see he had no confidence in 1v1 situations, he always looked for the earsier option of playing the ball back to the defenders despite having the stills and the pace to go pass opponents. Saka rightly took his place because he did everything Pepe was shy to do.Wish him well in Turkey
