Nicolas Pepe finally quits Arsenal for Trabzonspor

Published

on

Nicolas Pepe has become the latest player to leave Arsenal this summer with his move to Trabzonspor being confirmed.

It’s understood that the Ivory Coast international has put pen-to-paper on a short-term contract with the Turkish Super Lig outfit and whilst, at the time of writing, there’s been no announcement from the Gunners, a series of posts on social media all but confirms the deal is done.

Now, despite Trabzonspor confirming the transfer, all the formalities may not have been completed just yet. But it should only be a matter of time before an official announcement as Pepe is expected to undergo his medical on Friday morning before signing on the dotted line.

With that said, the winger has already outlined his ambitions for his new club: “I came here to become a champion and achieve success,” he told the club’s social media channel. It remains to be seen how much Arsenal earn from this sale as it’s been reported that the fee is between €4m (£3.4m) and €5m (£4.3m).

Having been linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League as well as Beskitas, the 28-year-old could, ironically, make his Trabzonspor debut against the former as that is the first game after the international break.

Although it might be a case of Pepe being eased back into action as he’s not played a single minute of competitive football since April as a result of a knee injury that disrupted his loan spell with OGC Nice during the second half of last season.

Transfer: Trabzonspor keen to extend Onuachu’s loan for another season

Trabzonspor want to take Southampton forward Paul Onuachu on loan for another season.

Onuachu joined the Turkish Super Lig side on a season-long loan last summer.

The Nigeria international has registered nine goals and three assists in 17 league appearances for Trabzonspor.

The Black Sea Storm are keen to sign the striker permanently but cannot meet up with Southampton’s €15 million valuation.

According to a report in Transfermarkt, Trabzonspor president, Ertugrul Dogan is pushing hard to have Onuachu at the club at least for another season.

A return to Southampton is highly unlikely for the lanky hitman, who struggled to establish himself during his six-month stay at the club.
