Arsenal 'offer Nicolas Pepe to Premier League rival'

Arsenal have offered Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe to a Premier League rival with the view to selling him this summer, according to a report.

Since making the move to the Premier League from Lille for around £72m in 2019, the 26-year-old has struggled for form and consistency during his spell at the Gunners.

The emergence of young wingers Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe in the Arsenal setup over the last couple of seasons has also further limited Pepe's involvement.

As a result, Pepe has featured in just 17 league appearances for Mikel Arteta's side across this campaign, scoring just once and providing one assist.

With the former Lille man entering the final two years of his contract this summer, Arsenal are offering Pepe's services out to fellow Premier League sides, according to the Express.

The report outlines how the Gunners are willing to significantly cut their losses on Pepe, whilst West Ham United are said to be one of the sides that are interested in his signature after being made aware of his availability.

No offer has yet been made however, but should Pepe move to the London Stadium, he would be competing with the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma and Andriy Yarmolenko for a place in David Moyes' side.
