Arsenal reportedly have £45m-rated Lille winger Nicolas Pepe in their sights after losing Danny Welbeck to a long-term ankle injury.
Arsenal have reportedly upped their interest in Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe after potentially losing Danny Welbeck to a season-long layoff.
Welbeck suffered a suspected broken ankle in Thursday’s 0-0 draw against Sporting Lisbon and is awaiting the results of a scan to determine the true extent of the injury.
The Gunners fear that the England international will be out for at least six months, however, taking him through to the end of his current deal.
According to The Sun, attention has now turned to bringing in a new player at the earliest possible opportunity, and Lille winger Pepe is in Unai Emery‘s sights.
