A number of clubs, including Newcastle United and AC Milan, are interested in signing Nicolas Pepe, and Mikel Arteta and Edu should simply cash in on the Arsenal winger.
Interest in Arsenal’s Nicolas Pepe
Jeunes Footeux reported earlier this month that Newcastle United, Everton and Crystal Palace all are interested in signing the 26-year-old.
We covered the report here on HITC Sport.
Arsenal’s decision is clear
In our view, Arsenal should take the money and run.
With four clubs keen on Pepe now, Arsenal are not going to find a better time to cash in on a player who has really not done much of note.
Unai Emery publicly told The Guardian in May 2020 that he wanted to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace for the Gunners and not Pepe from Lille.
The Arsenal no. 19 has scored 15 goals in 67 Premier League appearances.
The 26-year-old has created only 10 big chances.
In our opinion, Pepe has simply not delivered the goods on a consistent basis for Arsenal.
We do not think so.
