According to The Sun, Ivory Coast international, Nicolas Pepe was spotted at Arsenal training center in London Colney today.

The report added that he was spotted with Arsenal official photographer which is an hint that an official announcement is on the way.

It should be recalled that a report from Monday revealed that the 24-year-old winger was spotted at the airport in Miami. It is now obvious he came directly from the USA where he was on holiday to Arsenal FC.

The London Evening Standard disclosed that Pepe was at Arsenal training camp to have his medical, which means a transfer deal is close to being announced.

An earlier report had revealed that the Gunners had reached an agreement with Lille worth £72 million for Pepe which would be paid in installments by the Premier League club.

Another report from France claimed that Lille had first accepted a transfer bid from the Italian club, Napoli but Pepe opted for a move to Emirate Stadium instead.

So far, Manager Unai Emery has been able to complete two transfers involving Dani Ceballos and William Saliba this summer and as it now looks as though Pepe will be the fourth summer signing.
