According to a revelation from Fabrizio Romano, in fact, Nicolas Pepe is still not close to joining Besiktas, but Arsenal is actually trying to get rid of this player from the club because he is no longer in coach Mikel Arteta’s plans. .
The Italian journalist said:
“Although there is information that the transfer of Nicolas Pepe to Besiktas has been restarted, I am not aware of this move at the present time.”
“We will wait and see what happens with Besiktas, because their interest has been there for a long time. But, I was not informed about the deal being completed. Arsenal hopes to find some solution for Pepe, because he is 100% outside Mikel Arteta’s project.”
In the worst case scenario, it is expected that Arsenal will decide to liquidate Pepe’s contract, as they did with Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the past. However, before the transfer market in Turkey and Saudi Arabia closes, the Gunners certainly still want to find a way to sell Pepe to collect a certain fee from this player.
