Arsenal have submitted an €80 million (£70m) offer to Lille for Nicolas Pepe, according to reports in France.

Unai Emery is in the market for a new attacker who primarily plays on the flanks and the club have already failed with a £40m offer for Wilfried Zaha, who Crystal Palace value at £80m.

Pepe also fits the profile Arsenal are looking for but the 24-year-old has attracted interest from several clubs following his impressive performances on Lille’s right wing last season.

The Ivory Coast international scored 22 goals in Ligue 1 and registered 11 assists, but he lost out to Kylian Mbappe for the division’s Player of the Year award.

According to Telefoot, Arsenal have now submitted an €80m (£70m) proposal to Lille and the offer is being considered by the French club’s hierarchy.

The report also claims that Pepe has not yet made a decision over his future but would prioritise a move to Paris Saint-Germain if it became available.

PSG have not yet made an offer but may make a move if Neymar is sold back to Barcelona.

Pepe is now on his holidays after Ivory Coast were knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations by Algeria on Thursday evening.
