Pepe enjoyed a stellar campaign in France last season for Lille as they finished second to Paris Saint-Germain. He found the net 22 times, with only Kylian Mbappe managing more goals in the French top flight.

He also laid on 11 assists for teammates to bring his total contributions to 33 in 38 appearances.

If Arsenal are indeed able to agree terms with Pepe's agent, he will become Unai Emery's fourth signing of the summer after the arrival of 18-year old Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli from Ituano, William Saliba from Saint Etienne in a £27 million move and the loan signing of Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid.
