According to a source from L’Equipe, the star Nicolas Pepe will leave Arsenal this summer. According to L’Equipe, the Ivory Coast player is undergoing a medical test in Paris before landing with Turkish team Besiktas.
Pepe is not in the development plan of coach Mikel Arteta. Many experts consider Pepe a failed contract of the London team. Last season, Pepe signed for Nice on loan from Arsenal. He contributed 8 goals in 28 appearances.
The current contract between Arsenal and Pepe will expire in 2024. The Gunners want to push Pepe away to earn a certain amount of money in the transfer market. In 2019, Arsenal broke the safe, approved to spend 80 million euros to own the signature of the Ivorian star.
Contrary to expectations, Pepe played erratically, unable to reveal all his talent in Arsenal’s shirt.
Besiktas promises to become a stop to help Pepe revive his career. In the opposite direction, Arsenal can clean up and recruit more recruits when the winter transfer market opens.
