Arsenal transfer news: Gunners make approach for Lille star Nicolas Pepe – reports


Arsenal have made contact with the representatives of Lille star Nicolas Pepe, according to reports in France.

The 23-year-old forward was in scintillating form for the French club last season, bagging 13 goals in 36 Ligue 1 games.

Nicolas Pepe has caught the eye of Europe’s top clubs

Pepe has begun this season promisingly too, notching his first goal of the season during the opening day victory over Rennes.

His all-round performances have led to suggestions that a big-money move could be on the cards, with Europe’s top clubs closely monitoring his progress.

And, according to Le10 Sport, Arsenal are looking to steal a march on their transfer rivals and have already initiated talks with Pepe’s representatives.

The Ivory Coast international is valued at around £30m and the Gunners are hopeful of luring the in-demand forward to Emirates Stadium when the transfer window reopens in January.
