Lille president Gerard Lopez says that Nicolas Pepe - strongly linked with Arsenal - will leave Les Dogues this summer.

Lille president Gerard Lopez has said that Nicolas Pepe will leave Les Dogues in this summer's transfer window.

Pepe has been in impressive form for Lille during the 2018-19 campaign, finding the back of the net on 18 occasions and contributing 11 assists in 31 Ligue 1 appearances.

Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move for the Ivory Coast international this summer, and Lopez has now confirmed that the in-demand attacker will be available ahead of the 2019-2020 season.

"It's certain he will leave. He's in a price range that we cannot ignore anymore. There's a career choice for him to make, I think he'll have the choice to leave," Lopez told Telefoot.

Bayern Munich have also been credited with an interest in Pepe, who is reportedly valued at £68.8m by his French club.
