Luis Campos, the sporting director at LOSC Lille, has named the price at which the club could sell star winger Nicolas Pepe, with the January window fast approaching.
Pepe has been linked with Arsenal by the media since the summer, but Lille are understandably hesitant to sell. The 23-year-old has 12 goals and seven assists in 19 league games this season, pushing his team up to second in the table, as it stands.
Nonetheless, Campos has confirmed that they would consider selling in January, for the right price. He told Telefoot: “For 80 million euros, we could sell him.”
Unfortunately, €80m (£72m) isn’t exactly a price you’d expect Arsenal to be able to afford. The club only spent £71.1m in the entire summer window, so to spend more than that on one player in January would be massively unexpected.
