Turkish reports suggest that Beşiktaş is making significant progress in their pursuit of Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe. The Turkish club is keen on securing the services of the 28-year-old Ivorian, who has struggled to find his form since joining Arsenal in 2019.

Pepe was loaned out to French Ligue 1 side Nice last season, where he managed to score only six goals. This lackluster performance has raised concerns among Arsenal officials, who are now considering their options regarding the player’s future.

Beşiktaş, on the other hand, sees great potential in Pepe and believes that a change of scenery could help him rediscover his best form. The Turkish club is reportedly evaluating both a loan deal and a direct purchase option for the winger.

However, Arsenal is not viewing the possibility of terminating Pepe’s contract with enthusiasm. The Gunners invested heavily in the Ivorian when they signed him for a club-record fee of £72 million from Lille two years ago. They still believe that Pepe can fulfill his potential and become an integral part of their squad.

A loan move could provide Pepe with an opportunity to regain his confidence and form without completely severing ties with Arsenal. On the other hand, a direct purchase option would allow Beşiktaş to secure a long-term deal for the winger if he impresses during his time in Turkey.

Pepe’s return to Arsenal after his loan spell at Nice was met with mixed reactions from fans and pundits alike. Many had high hopes for him when he arrived at the Emirates Stadium but were left disappointed by his inconsistent performances.

It remains to be seen whether Beşiktaş will be able to strike a deal with Arsenal for Nicolas Pepe. However, it is clear that both clubs have different perspectives on how best to utilize the talented winger. Only time will tell what lies ahead for Pepe and whether a move to Beşiktaş could be the catalyst for his resurgence.

I enjoy football so much and I am in love with Arsenal Football Club. I always watch the matches and will always give you my opinions about the game here.
