“Deal Breaks Down and What’s Next?” – This Big Deal Involving Arsenal Has Collapsed

An unexpected twist has unfolded in the transfer market saga involving Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe. CBS Sports recently reported that the Ivorian international’s potential move to a Saudi Arabian club has surprisingly fallen through.

Pepe, who joined Arsenal from French club LOSC Lille in 2019, hasn’t been able to justify the hefty €80 million fee the Gunners paid for his services. In his two seasons at Lille, Pepe had a remarkable record, with 37 goals and 18 assists in 79 appearances. However, his stint at Arsenal has been far less productive.

As Pepe enters the final year of his contract, Arsenal seems ready to part ways with him. CBS Sports reports that the club is willing to accept a nominal fee or even terminate his contract to offload the Ivorian attacker

During his first three seasons at the Emirates, Pepe managed only 27 goals and 21 assists in 112 games. To rekindle his form, Arsenal loaned Pepe to OGC Nice for the 2022-23 season. His time in France appeared fruitful initially, with six goals and one assist in his first 16 games. However, injuries hampered his progress in the second half of the season.

As Pepe enters the final year of his contract, Arsenal seems ready to part ways with him. CBS Sports reports that the club is willing to accept a nominal fee or even terminate his contract to offload the Ivorian attacker. Earlier this week, it seemed a move to the Saudi Pro League was on the cards.

The unnamed Saudi club allegedly offered Pepe a net salary of €5 million plus bonuses. Unfortunately for both parties, this deal has now collapsed. The Saudi club has reportedly moved on to other targets, leaving Pepe in a challenging position.

This development adds to the intriguing saga of Nicolas Pepe’s future. With the transfer window closing soon, time is of the essence for Arsenal to find another suitor. With Pepe’s previous performances in mind, clubs might be hesitant to take the plunge.

The recent collapse of Pepe’s move to Saudi Arabia throws an interesting wrench into the summer transfer window workings

However, Pepe’s potential should not be underestimated. His stint at Lille proved he can be a formidable forward. Clubs seeking an attacking boost may still view him as a valuable addition.

Moreover, from Arsenal’s perspective, offloading Pepe might be beneficial. His transfer would free up funds and squad space for potential new signings. The Gunners will undoubtedly be looking for replacements to strengthen their squad.

The recent collapse of Pepe’s move to Saudi Arabia throws an interesting wrench into the summer transfer window workings. For the Arsenal forward, his future remains uncertain. Yet, the transfer window is notoriously unpredictable.

Watch this space for more developments on Pepe’s situation. As with all things football, expect the unexpected. It promises to be an interesting couple of weeks as the transfer window edges closer to shutting.
