Pepe moved away from the center of the right wing that Bukayo Saka grabbed, while Emile Smith Rowe proved his feet on the left side, especially after he scored in 3 consecutive matches in the Premier League, and won the international call-up to the England team.
Arteta tried to give Pepe some opportunities previously, with Saka moving to the left side, to take advantage of the advantages of the 26-year-old Ivorian, but that did not work with the duo, and at the moment, Pepe is closer to leaving than staying.
According to “Football London”, Arsenal are ready to sell Pepe for 25 million pounds, but there are no actual offers at the moment, and therefore it is difficult for the club to obtain this amount.
On the other hand, reports have linked the Gunners to many wings recently, led by Dejan Kulusevsky, the Juventus winger, who was also excluded from the accounts of his coach, Massimiliano Allegri.
Another name looming on the horizon is Club Brugge winger Noah Lang, and while Arsenal continue to search for this type of player, Pepe’s days at the Emirates Stadium are drawing to a close.
