If you have followed the news from OGC Nice in recent weeks, you will have easily understood what the leaders of the Riviera are looking for: reinforcements in the offensive sector. Mikhaïlo Mudryk, Bamba Dieng or even Edinson Cavani and Moise Kean, all names that have been associated with Les Aiglons.
Led by Dave Brailsford, the sports management wants to strike a blow. And it is now thanks to Arsenal that she hopes to achieve it. Indeed, according to our information, OGC Nice wants to recover Nicolas Pépé in the form of a loan. The Ivorian now plays utility for the Gunners, who prefer the twirling Bukayo Saka to him.
Nice need a hard-hitting winger
Not used since the resumption of the Premier League, Pépé seems destined for a substitute role, three years after being sold to Arsenal for the sum of 80 M €. Therefore, his agent is listening to potential offers and that of Nice caught his attention. An appointment has already taken place and Nicolas Pépé would be interested in the idea of a return to Ligue 1.
He left our championship with the image of a player in a state of grace during the 2018-2019 season, with 22 goals and exceptional performances. If he did not know how to repeat the same thing with Arsenal, he could therefore come and revive on the side of Nice, who would find there a hard-hitting and more effective winger than Calvin Stengs, in difficulty.
