Ainsley Maitland-Niles may not join Roma on a permanent basis, but Arsenal will ‘look to find buyers’ this summer. And there remains some doubt in Nicolas Pepe’s future at Arsenal with the winger falling down the pecking order at the Emirates.
Pepe’s sale will be dependent on the club finding a buyer willing to meet his huge wage demands as he currently earns £140,000 a week. Arsenal paid a club-record fee worth £72million to sign the Ivory Coast international back in 2019 after a stellar campaign with Lille.
But it’s failed to work out for Pepe at the Emirates and he may be moved on having struggled for regular minutes under Arteta.
