Arsenal are still in their fight to return to Champions League football and if they so, they might find it easier to lure in one of their transfer targets. According to Goal, Arsenal are interested in signing Nicolas Pepe from Lille. The Ligue 1 side is on course to reach the Champions League football and the Ivorian had a huge part in every success of the current season.
Pepe scored 18 goals and added a further 11 assists in 32 appearances in all competitions so far this season and it is no wonder many European clubs are eager to sign him. Lille’s right winger had an offer on the table last summer, to sign for Lyon, but he claims he never hesitated he wanted to stay at his current club for another season. Now that he has done so, he might find it easier to change the club this time and Arsenal are holding him high on their transfer list
Reports are claiming Lille would be satisfied with an offer of around €50m, but even that might change once Lille are officially back in the Champions League.
