Ed02. There are a few rumours around that we are looking at Nicolas Pepe. Is he someone that we are interested in? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Sevilla see Nicolas Pepe as a replacement for Jesus Navas (who they gave a long contract to) and Real Betis see him as a replacement for Joaquín who is aging. However, both made approaches in the summer of 2018 and were shocked at the asking price and stepped back. Lyon has had an interest in Pepe since he was at Anger but have Bertrand Traoré and Maxwell Cornet who are vesatile and are playing well - so it is tough to see how he would fit in unless they were pressured in to losing one. Whilst it is a position that Arsenal are short in and they were looking at the likes of Martins and Pavon in the summer and got nowhere. So it is possible but I would need to ask - and will do.}

Thanks ed. I think he would be an excellent signing. We really need a winger.

Who is he I’ve never heard of him.

He's a 23 year old Ivoryian winger that plays for lille.

Did you get the chance to ask if our interest is genuine ed?

{Ed002's Note - I had forgotten but have now. Arsenal were represented at a game against Rennes in August where pepe was one of the players watched - the other being Thiago Mendes who the scout had recommended to Arsenal before they opted for Lucas Torreira. Lille are obviously aware that he has attended games and he plans on being at Lille again for the l'OM game at the end of the month, but there have been no specific discussions with Lille about the player. Anecdotally, his pick if he could have a young right winger would be Ferran Torres - but that won't happen.}

Thank you ed.

{Ed002's Note - Apologies for letting it slip my mind - but I have been travelling this week and I am very old and forget stuff easily.}
