Hi eds. have Arsenal shown any interest in signing in nicolas pepe? Read a report that we are trying to sign him in January.

{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, like Schalke, 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 and that put the player off discussions in the summer. Barcelona have also looked at Pepe and Bayern Munich, who are searching for two RWs, have him on their shortlist. 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. 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.}

Will Nelson be given a chance or will we try and buy a right winger? Shame if he's not given an opportunity.

I'd rather see the money used for defensive players, and Nelson given a chance when he returns from loan.

I'm with GH, not sure how long we can continue playing Mustafi. Nelson won't be back from Hoffenheim till next season.
