Pepe, an Ivory Coast international, joined Arsenal in the summer of 2019 from French side Lille. During his time at the club, he made 111 appearances in all competitions and played a crucial role in their FA Cup victory in 2020. He assisted the winning goal in their 2-1 triumph over Chelsea.

The statement released by Arsenal expressed gratitude towards Pepe for his contributions during his tenure with the club. They thanked him for his efforts and wished him well for his future endeavors.

Pepe’s departure marks the end of an era for Arsenal as they bid farewell to a player who had shown promise but failed to consistently deliver on expectations. His time at Arsenal was marred by inconsistency and underwhelming performances, which ultimately led to this decision.

Overall, while Nicolas Pepe’s time at Arsenal may not have lived up to expectations, it is important to acknowledge his contributions and wish him well as he embarks on a new chapter in his football career.
