Arsenal have reportedly tabled an €80million (£70m) offer to Lille for Ivory Coast winger Nicolas Pepe.

Arsenal is in the market for a new wide player and the club have already failed with a £40m offer for Wilfried Zaha.

Crystal Palace value the former Manchester United wide man at £80m.

Pepe, who alongside Zaha featured for Ivory Coast in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), has attracted interest from top clubs following his impressive performances last season in Ligue 1.

Pepe scored 22 goals in Ligue 1 and registered 11 assists, but he lost out to Kylian Mbappe for the division’s Player of the Year award.

According to Telefoot, Lille is considering the bid for their star player.
