Nicolas Pepe to join Nice on loan from Arsenal
Nicolas Pepe, the Ivorian is set to join Nice from Arsenal on loan. There are still negotiations between the two parties, Arsenal and Nice.
Arsenal signed Pepe from Lille in 2019 in a club-record deal worth £72 million ($87m).
He featured 31 times in the Premier League in his first season but soon fell out of the first-team, starting just 16 of the 29 games he played in the English top-flight the following year.
Pepe was in the starting XI just five times in the Premier League last term and made 15 appearances off the bench.
Overall, he played 112 times and scored 27 goals for Arsenal.
He has been linked with a move to several teams over the course of the summer, but the winger insisted in July that he was “determined” to turn his fortunes at Arsenal around and revive his career.
