Arsenal star Nicolas Pepe ‘offered to PSG in shock transfer’ with winger seen as Ousmane Dembele alternative


PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are reportedly eyeing up a shock swoop for Arsenal flop Nicolas Pepe as an alternative to Ousmane Dembele.

The 26-year-old is believed to be facing an uncertain future in North London having failed to prove his worth since his club-record £72million arrival in 2019.

Former Lille winger Pepe is claimed to have been deemed as surplus to requirements having fallen down the pecking order under Mikel Arteta.

The likes of Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe were all preferred ahead of the Ivorian during the 2021-21 season.

Pepe was limited to just 20 Premier League appearances, with the player named in the starting XI just five times – the last of which came on October 18 in the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

And with two years left to run on his contract, it has been reported that Arsenal are ready to listen to offers.

A fee of around £25million could be enough to tempt the Gunners into parting ways with the 2020 FA Cup winner.

It has been said that West Ham are interested in the player, with Pepe open to returning to France, or test himself in Spain or Italy.

And according to Foot Mercato, PSG could be willing to take a gamble on the forward with Arsenal keen to offload having lost patience with him.

They state that Les Parisiens, who are in the market for a new winger, have been offered the chance to sign Pepe.

The French news outlet adds that PSG’s incoming Luis Camps is a huge admirer of Pepe, having worked with him at Lille.

And Campos could push for the club to make a move for Pepe should they miss out on top target Ousmane Dembele.

Barcelona ace Dembele is facing an uncertain future at the Nou Camp with the Frenchman poised to become a free agent.
