Barcelona are looking at the 23-year-old, who has scored nine goals in 15 games.
But according to Mercato365, Arsenal are keen to push forward with the transfer for the summer of 2019.

Pepe has a contract until 2022, and he’s scored nine, assisted six and won a couple of penalties in 16 appearances this season, so it’s no surprise his value is skyrocketing.
