Following the current news on Nicolas Pepe, Arsenal are expected to be connected with a slew of new wingers.
According to football.london, the Ivorian winger, who joined Arsenal for £72 million in 2019, is dissatisfied with his current status at the Emirates Stadium and will evaluate his options in the January transfer window.
Pepe was once again an unused substitute in Arsenal’s defeat to Everton earlier this week, sparking further doubts about his future at the north London club.
Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele. The France international has until December 31 to decide on his future, with Barca apparently offering him a new contract, which will expire at the end of the season.
Dembele will be allowed to speak to international clubs during the January transfer window instead of waiting until the conclusion of the season to make a move. Newcastle United and Manchester United have both been linked with a move for the former Borussia Dortmund star, but Arsenal should be banging on his door.
Throughout his four-year stay at Barcelona, the Frenchman has been plagued by injury difficulties, which may have deterred other clubs from making a move for the unquestionable potential.
Sala tipped to make Arsenal exit
Bukayo Saka’s future may lay outside of Arsenal, according to Matt Upson, although a trade is not imminent.
The 20-year-contract old’s with Arsenal is set to expire in roughly two and a half years, but he was linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium earlier this year.
In September, Calciomercato stated that Juventus and Atletico Madrid were both interested in Saka, but the rumor has yet to materialize.
Upson, who played for Arsenal from 1997 to 2003, has now given his judgement on Saka, stating that the England international’s future may lie elsewhere than with the Gunners.
In an interview with Stadium Astro, Upson stated: “I believe we’re discussing a player who is still establishing himself at Arsenal.
“He is an England international, but in terms of appearances, he now plays every week, but this must be done over a period of time before a transfer can be made.
Saka has had a huge impact on Arsenal over the last two seasons, and it would take a ridiculous deal for the Gunners to consider trading him.
