Falling into a ‘forgotten existence’ at Arsenal… Difficulty in notifying ‘impossible’ to terminate the contract

Arsenal side striker Nicola Pepe (28) desperately hopes to leave completely this summer, but the atmosphere is not going as he wants. It is reported that he is facing a situation where the transfer is highly likely to fail even though he is currently receiving a ‘love call’ from Besiktas.

The British media ‘Daily Express’ said on the 8th (Korean time), “Pepe wants to move to Besiktas, and recently asked Arsenal for a proposal to terminate the contract under mutual agreement. However, as he was rejected, he is having difficulties transferring.”

Pepe is a Côte d’Ivoire-born winger who wore an Arsenal shirt in the summer of 2019. When he was playing for LOSC Lille, he swept the French Ligue 1 with his explosive speed, reckless dribbling breakthrough, and flamboyant foot technique, and joined with a lot of expectations.

In fact, the transfer fee he recorded was 80 million euros (approximately 115.5 billion won) based on the transfer market specialized media ‘Transfermarkt’. This was the highest transfer fee (club record) ever for Arsenal at the time. Currently, it is 116.6 million euros (approximately 168.3 billion won) recorded by Declan Rice (24), who joined West Ham United after leaving West Ham United this summer.

Pepe, however, has been disappointing since joining Arsenal. There were frequent excessive dribbles that cut off his attack flow, and his lack of decisiveness was also revealed. He could not adapt to the fast tempo and rough physical fights typical of the English Premier League (EPL). As a result, he even wrote stigma such as ‘the best eating and running’.

In the end, as time passed, he was shunned by manager Mikel Arteta (41, Spain) and classified as ‘out of power’, and then classified as ‘release target’ last year. However, as no club showed interest in signing him, he left on a season-long loan to OGC Nice. And he returned earlier in June, but is still not included in the plans for the new season. As a result, he is pursuing a transfer, and he is actively courted by Besiktas.

Pepe, however, was notified that Beşiktaş would want to terminate his contract and return, as they could not afford to pay the transfer fee due to their tight financial situation. As a result, the agent recently requested that the remaining one-year contract with Arsenal be terminated by mutual agreement, but was rejected and the transfer is experiencing difficulties.메이저놀이터

‘Daily Express’ said, “Pepe wants to go to Besiktas as a free agent (FA). However, Arsenal, which wants even a little transfer fee income, is taking a hardline attitude and is in trouble,” he added.
