Pepe joined Lille from Angers in 2017 and enjoyed an impressive first campaign with the Ligue 1 side as he hit 13 goals, despite battling relegation for much of the season.

Pepe's agents were locked in meetings with Napoli in Italy earlier this week after the Serie A club agreed a fee with Lille for the winger.

Sky Italia claims Arsenal are set to provide competition to Carlo Ancelotti's side in signing the 24-year-old, after they forcefully entered the transfer race for the Ivory Coast global in the last few hours.

Champions League qualifiers Napoli have been repeatedly reported to be interested in signing Kieran Tierney and yet it appears that he will be signing for Arsenal.

Arsenal are confident of concluding a £72million deal for Lille's coveted forward Nicolas Pepe after a breakthrough in negotiations on Friday evening.

De Laurentiis has met our asking price of €80m.

Arsenal are looking increasingly likely to see off strong competition to land Nicolas Pepe, with the Gunners now in advanced talks over the structure of a staggered payment plan for the €80 million (£72m/$89m) Lille winger.

"For Nico, it is nearly done and he could have left last summer".

The club's owner Gerard Lopez today told Tuttosport they had received four satisfactory offers from top European clubs.

"It's up to the player to decide now where to go based on the offers his agent has received from the four clubs".

"On Monday Pepé will return from vacation and I believe that half a week will dissolve the reserves." .
