'Falls short of what we want': Arsenal fans react to reports Nicolas Pepe could leave in January
Arsenal fans have been having their say on social media as news emerged over the weekend that the Gunners could be preparing to let Nicolas Pepe leave.
The Ivorian has cut a divisive figure this season at The Emirates. He’s failed to get a regular starting XI slot, while last weekend he saw red at Elland Road when given the chance by Mikel Arteta.
However, he followed it up in midweek with a fine performance against Molde, a game in which he fired in a fine goal. But, according to the Daily Star, Pepe could still be on his way out, with the Gunners said to be considering a sale.
Arsenal fans, then, have been giving their reaction to the news on Twitter, with some supporters seemingly believing a move might be best for all involved.
With that, here’s how some Gunners fans reacted to the emerging reports of a potential Nicolas Pepe sale.
He should go. A team player but falls short of what we wanted of him
