Lille coach Christophe Galtier retains confidence of keeping hold of Nicolas Pepe.
The Ivory Coast winger is again being linked with Arsenal this week ahead of the January market.
Galtier said, “My president was here this Tuesday. He looks at the team, he takes pleasure. He suffered a lot last season. It offers a lot of fun to see the mood, the results.
“I did not hear my president say that he was going to sell Nicolas in the winter transfer window.
“Nicolas works, does not ask questions, is available for his teammates. In my eyes, he released a big game against Lyon (2-2, last Saturday).”
