Chelsea will support Arsenal’s attempt to attract Lille striker Nicholas Pepe, media reported in France. 23-year-old footballer impresses with the team of “dogs” this season, which has a total of 30 goals and assists in the French league 1 for Lille, and also in the Bayern Munchen radar.
It is a curious fact that Chelsea bought the Belgian attacking midfielder from the French club after Eden Hazard arrives at Stamford Bridge in 2012 for 35 million euros.
London’s “Blue” believe Pepe will be able to successfully replace the almost disappearing Eden Hazard in the near future, Telefoot writes. Lille’s president Gérard Lopez admitted a few days ago that almost 100% are sure Pepe will leave the team, with the club’s budget ready to release at least 70 million pounds.
