German club in the battle to sign €40m-rated Gunners long-term target

Bundesliga giants in the battle to sign Lille winger Nicolas Pepe and set to battle with Arsenal and Chelsea for the player. Bayern need a new creative attacker as Arjen Robben and Franck Ribéry already up to 34 and their back-up is necessary. Ivory Coast international is the perfect option in this situation as he has an amazing campaign and paid big clubs attention. Niko Kovac will do everything to add him during the summer transfer window. Gunners and Blues also keen to sign him and there will be a real battle for the footballer.

His price could increase and become much more. Nicolas joined the French club from Angers in 2017 with a €10m deal. He is one of the best forwards in Ligue 1 and unchanged figure for the club. In this season, Pepe already played 26 matches, scored 11 goals and made 7 assists in all tournament. This is an impressive result and he can improve his consequences with high-class partners.

Ivorian winger is contracted with the Les Dogues until 2022 and his release clause is around €40m. He is a regular member of the national team which is already a big achievement for the attacker. German club ready to pay big money for the footballer during this summer as they have to improve the front-line much more. Bavarians are in second place in the Bundesliga table which is a terrible result for the club. They have to face Liverpool in Champions League next week. Probably Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer will miss this match which is a big problem.
