Arsenal to sell big-money winger, in shock transfer u-turn: report
Arsenal look like offloading a big-money winger, as Financial Fair Play restrictions come into play at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners spent big in the summer, investing over £200 million in the playing squad, as Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber and David Raya all joined. Outgoings have been a little more disappointing, however: Folarin Balogun left for far less than the quoted £50m, with Kieran Tierney, Nuno Tavares and Albert Sambi Lokonga all failing to find permanent transfers.
With the transfer window still not closed in either Saudi Arabia or Turkey, however, Arsenal have an opportunity to move players on – and have resurrected a deal which looked to be dead just recently.
90min reports that the north Londoners are going to receive a fee for offloading £72m signing Nicolas Pepe to Turkey in the coming days, with Besiktas still interested in a deal.
