Arsenal target Nicolas Pepe has hinted he is ready to leave Lille sparking a potential Gunners move for the winger.

The Ivorian, 23, has been tipped to join the Unai Emery revolution, but it could cost as much as £44million.

Pepe, 23, has been in superb form in Ligue 1 this season, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists in 13 games. That has inevitably led to interest from elsewhere and Arsenal are believed to have scouted the winger this season.

Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the Ivory Coast international, who has been involved in more goals than either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe this season.

Pepe would fill a gap for Arsenal, who have been short of natural width on the flanks since the likes of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain moved on last season, and Danny Welbeck ruled out due to a long-term injury which he sustained in their goalless draw against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League.

The Sun says Pepe would be worth £45m and Arsenal are considering a January move.
