Arsenal Man Nicolas Pepe Is Set To Complete A Loan Move To Nice.

 Nice and Arsenal have reached an agreement for Nicolas Pepe to join on a season-long loan.

The 27-year-old Ivory Coast international's contract does not provide the Ligue 1 team the opportunity to make the transfer permanent.

The last details are being worked out, and it's anticipated that everything will be finished in the next 48 hours.

Pepe, who joined Arsenal from Lille for a club-record £72 million in 2019, has two years left on his contract and has made 112 appearances for the Gunners while scoring 27 goals.

The most expensive player in Arsenal history, Nicolas Pepe arrived but left with little of an impact. The club's most recent hiring process was specifically tailored to meet Mikel Arteta's desires.

Pepe serves as a memory of how things were previously.

In 2019, Edu had just been hired to take over Sven Mislintat's position as technical director at Arsenal, but Raul Sanllehi, the club's former head of football, was still in charge of hiring new players, and there was a definite rift between him and manager Unai Emery.

With 16 goals in 80 Premier League games, Pepe would only ever display glimmers of his potential in England, and it soon became evident that Arteta, like Emery, was not persuaded.

In an interview with Sky Sports in November 2019, Emery said of the Ivorian that he needs to "be more demanding of himself," and Arteta concurred.
