Arsenal target Nicolas Pepe has unwittingly admitted interest from the North London sides Arsenal as he gives his reaction to the speculations.
The French Ligue 1 outfit Lille forward has been on the Gunners wanted list for a number of weeks with expectations that a deal would be finalized in this January winter transfer window.
However, he has come out to state that he does not rule out a move away from the French Ligue 1 outfit but that will not happen in this winter window as he will only consider an offer in the summer window when the season ends.
The Ivory Coast international has been fantastic so far this season with a fine form which has made him attract interest from a number of big teams.
The 23-year-old has now been tipped as one of the hottest players in the French Ligue 1 having scored 12 goals and five assists in the 19 games under his belt.
He also noted that he has got a contract with his club until 2020 but that would not be considered at the moment as he only seeks to see off this season to satisfy the wish of the club’s president.
Nicolas Pepe will serve as a replacement for England international Danny Welbeck should he sign for the Gunners at the end of the season.
