According to reports in France from Telefoot, claims Arsenal would be willing to offer €50 million in a bid to sign Nicolas Pepe from Lille.

The Ivorian international continues to deliver stellar performances for Les Dogues, which only increases the number of suitors for his services

The 23-year-old has had a hand in 15 goals (eight goals, seven assists) in all 12 top-flight games so far and that’s a pretty fascinating stat for a man who is predominantly a right-winger. .

It is understood Lille rejected an offer of £26m from Olympique Lyonnais for Pepe.

Arsenal were linked with a deal to sign Pepe over the summer and Unai Emery’s men will be hoping that their long-standing interest will give them an advantage.

The likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have all been rumoured to have interest in the eight-time capped Ivorian.

The Red Devils are in dire need of a natural right-winger, a position that has been a strength for them down the years but utilising the likes of Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Marital – who aren’t natural widemen – has led to inconsistency.
