Arsenal are ready to listen to offers for record-signing Nicolas Pépé.
The Gunners paid Lille £72 million for the Ivorian winger three years ago, but he has struggled to impress on a consistent basis, and has not started a Premier League game for more than six months.
His cause has not been helped either by the emergence of Bukayo Saka in his preferred position on the right wing, who is ow the club’s leading scorer this season.
He still has two years left on his current contract to run, and the club are aware that they are likely to take a large hit on what they paid for him.
However, at the same time, he is one of their few remaining assets with any resale value, and given his frustration at lack of first-team involvement, this might be an opportune time for player and team to cut ties.
A stumbling block might be his wages of £140,000, and finding somebody willing to match them.
