Ivory Coast star told he has no Arsenal future

Arsenal once made Nicolas Pepe their most expensive signing but now they have told the Ivory Coast player to find a new club.

Pepe arrived in the Premier League to much fan fare in a deal that cost a whopping £72 million from Lille in 2019.

Arsenal don’t need Pepe anymore

The 28-year-old attacker was sent out on loan to Ligue 1 with Nice but did not impress.

Now Arsenal want to let him go.

West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, who would cost £100 million. and Brighton midfielder Moses Caicedo, who will cost as much as £70 million, are their targets ahead of the new season.

England international midfielder Jude Bellingham has agreed to join Real Madrid despite interest from several Premier League clubs.

Manchester City and Liverpool have lost out. Big time. This comes after the confirmation that Bellingham has pledged his loyalty to LaLiga giants Real Madrid.

 Kroos admitted as much when speaking of Bellingham’s €103m move to the Spanish capital, announced by the La Liga giants on Wednesday. The German told his Einfach mal Luppen podcast: “€103m transfer fee? We now also had someone who came for a lot of money and virtually let his career rest.
