According to Give Me Sport, Newcastle united are interested in the signature of Nicholas Pepe. The 27 year old is on their radar as they seek to make a marque signing.
Pepe’s signing would provide depth, cover, and competition for star player Allan Saint-Maximin and others. Eddie Howe is looking to build his playing squad organically with funds from the Saudi PIF ownership structure.
Pepe joined Arsenal from Lille in 2019 for £72m but performances-wise he hasn’t delivered till date. Arsenal will welcome a deal to offload him if only the price is right.
The Gunners have had a splendid transfer window, bringing in the likes of Fabio Vieira, Gabriel Jesus, Marquinhos, Matt Turner and Zinchenko.
Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have all returned after their loan spells. And as a result game time for Pepe will be less. In all Pepe has made 112 appearances ever since joining.
