AC Milan have reportedly joined the list of clubs interested in signing Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe.
The Ivory Coast international has struggled to justify his £72m price tag since arriving two years ago and has fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta.
Pepe is therefore being tipped to end his Arsenal stint in 2022, with the Gunners supposedly prepared to cut their losses and ship him out for as little as £25m.
Crystal Palace are rumoured to be plotting a swoop for Pepe, but Il Milanista reports that Milan are hoping to strike a January deal for the 26-year-old.
The report adds that Rossoneri boss Stefano Pioli is a keen fan of the former Lille man, and the powers-that-be at Arsenal are “not satisfied” with Pepe’s contributions.
The attacker boasts 25 goals and 18 assists from 98 games for the Gunners but has only started one of Arsenal’s last six Premier League games.
