OFFICIAL: Arsenal have signed Nicolas Pépé for a club-record £72m from Lille.


Arsenal have completed the signing of Nicolas Pepe from Lille for a club-record £72m.

Despite having a reported budget of £45m, the Gunners splashed the cash to bring in one of Europe’s highest-rated young wingers.

It’s understood that Arsenal will spread the fee over a set number of years, much like the deal for William Saliba. Pepe has penned a five-year contract.

Arsenal fans are hoping to see the 24-year-old line up in a front three alongside Alexandre Lacazette and last season’s Premier League Golden Boot winner, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
