Nicolás Pépé, a step away from Turkish football

The future of Nicolás Pépé, Arsenal’s Ivorian winger, has been the subject of speculation in the transfer market and although it appeared his destiny lay in Saudi football, new reports point in a different direction.

According to RMC Sport, the possibility of Nicolás Pépé joining the Saudi Professional League is completely ruled out. Instead, the French winger would gravitate towards Turkish Trabzonspor, a club that would be willing to spend between 4 and 5 million euros for his services. Arsenal would be close to giving the green light to this operation.



Pépé has been neglecting Mikel Arteta’s plans at Arsenal for some time. His lack of regular participation in the team has led the London club to look for ways to part with his high salary, as he is one of the highest-paid players in the squad.

Arsenal were initially willing to accept offers from Saudi football for Pépé, but recently there has been a change of direction regarding his potential transfer. The Ivorian player, like Jadon Sancho, appears to have no interest in a move to Saudi Arabia and is instead prioritizing a move to Turkish club Trabzonspor.

RMC Sport’s Fabrice Hawkins has revealed that the operation could be completed for an amount between €4m and €5m, a sum Arsenal would be willing to accept to facilitate Pépé’s departure.

Trabzonspor, who have held talks with Arsenal, are keen to add the talented winger to their squad. This move could mark the end of Nicolás Pépé’s tenure at Arsenal and start a new chapter in his Turkish football career. Fans will be excited to see how this story unfolds over the coming weeks.
