"Arsenal Target Pepe Certain To Leave Lille At The End Of The Season," Claims Club President Gerard Lopez

Lille club president Gerard Lopez has claimed that Ivory Coast winger Pepe will be sold at the end of the season.
Pepe, 23, has been in fine form this season, providing 19 goals and 11 assists in 32 Ligue 1 games.

Arsenal have been repeatedly linked with Pepe and, according to Lopez, he will be available to sign this summer as Lille can no longer afford him.

Lopez explained:

This summer, I think we will sell four to five players, no more.

All clubs are forced to balance their accounts except perhaps one. I would say, it is sure he will leave.

He enters a price range that can no longer be paid. There is a career choice for him to make. I think he will have the choice.

Pepe shone on Sunday night as Lille thrashed PSG 5-1. He scored once and set up two other goals as the shock result delayed the Parisian's Ligue 1 coronation.
