Worst recruit in the history of the ‘120.9 billion’ team, wait a little longer for transfer… “Two teams are reaching an agreement”

Transfers are not easily accomplished.

French media ‘L’Equipe’ reported on the 6th (Korean time), “Nicolas Pepe (28, Arsenal)’s transfer to Besiktas will have to wait.” Pepe has completed his medical test, but it is reported that an agreement is still being considered between Besiktas and Arsenal.메이저사이트

Pepe was once a striker who dominated the French Ligue 1 team. His brilliant dribbling and sharp shooting were considered his greatest strengths. He enjoyed a stellar season with LOSC Lille in the 2018-19 season, scoring 22 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions.

Thanks to these performances, he succeeded in joining Arsenal in 2019. The transfer fee that Arsenal invested was a whopping 72 million pounds (approximately 120.9 billion won), making it the most expensive signing in the club’s history at the time.

But this choice had the worst consequences. Pepe has become a mediocre player compared to his Lille days. He scored just 27 goals in 112 games for Arsenal in his career. He played nearly three times as many games compared to his final season at Lille, but scored a similar number of goals.

Last season, he went on a one-year loan to OGC Nice (France). His sluggishness continued there too. He appeared in 28 games and scored only 8 goals. He returned to Arsenal this summer.

Naturally, manager Mikel Arteta had no intention of using Pepe anymore. However, as his slump prolonged, no team was keeping an eye on Pepe. In the end, Arsenal even considered terminating the contract with Pepe by mutual agreement, even taking the loss of not incurring a transfer fee.

Meanwhile, Besiktas showed interest. The transfer negotiations proceeded quickly. Pepe even completed a medical test. He was about to transfer. The transfer was possible in the Turkiye League as the transfer market closes on the 15th.

But he still has to wait a bit. According to the media, it is known that the agreement between the clubs is not 100% complete. Arsenal fans who want Pepe to leave as soon as possible cannot help but be upset.
