Transfer News: Arsenal set to sign Pepe for £72m

Arsenal could sign Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe from Lille, after agreeing a signing fee of £72m for the Ivorian.
The Gunners are reported to be offering superior terms ahead of Napoli, making Lille President Gerard Lopez seeing Arsenal as favourite to land the 24-year-old winger, especially with Arsenal ready to meet the request of £4.5m as annual salary for the Ivory Coast International.

Napoli were willing to pay the forward a fee of £3.6m per year, but the Pacy, left-footed winger will make his choice when he's back from the holiday on Monday.

Lille are also willing to collect an upfront payment and the rest in installments, this could also ease the payment for Arsenal.
Lille have received interest from three English clubs and some Spanish club for the winger who scored 22 goals last season and assisting 11 others in the French Ligue 1.

Gunners Securing the service of Wilfred Zaha is now in doubt.
