Nicolas Pepe breaks silence on £65m summer switch
Arsenal are one of many in a pack of clubs hunting the signature of Pepe as they look to strengthen their forward line ahead of next season.
Manchester United and Chelsea are also keen on the Ivorian international and would have more money to spend in the coming months.
And now Pepe has spoken about his future but has still refused to let out his decision.
“We don’t talk about it, the season is not over yet,” he told beIN Sports.
“Once it is finished we will be able to talk about it, but now no.”
It’s also thought that Arsenal’s budget for the summer will be around £40million, while Lille will ask for around £65m for Pepe, who is Ligue 1’s second top scorer this season with 20 goals.
Golden Boot winner Aubameyang buoyant after adjusting to ‘best in the world’ Premier League
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is feeling fully adjusted to Premier League life, with the Arsenal striker in buoyant mood after seeing a 22-goal return earn him a share of the 2018-19 Golden Boot.
Aubameyang is delighted to have proven himself on such a competitive stage, saying of his time in England following a January 2018 move from Borussia Dortmund: “It took a little bit of time [to settle].
“I had six months to prepare me to this league. I think I did well the first six months and now I did all the season so I’m happy with that and hopefully I will do better for the next seasons.”
Mesut Ozil speaks out about his Arsenal future after a mixed first season under Unai Emery
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has insisted that he won’t be leaving the Emirates Stadium any time soon.
The German has been in and out of Unai Emery’s starting lineup this season, either through injury or through not being selected by the manager.
Ozil was not even included on the bench for the Gunners’ final Premier League game of the season against Burnley on Sunday.
But, while there may be some frustration on the player’s part, the 30-year-old insists that he will keep working to help both himself and his team.
“If the coach speaks to me and tells me I won’t play in a game it’s something I need to accept and just get on with it,” he told DAZN DACH (via Goal).
