Pepe summer sale

How much can we realistically get for him if we tried to cut our losses this summer? At the moment I'd be overjoyed with 30mil

Current climate its difficult to see anyone paying 30M, especially for Pepe

I still maintain that he'll do fine as soon as Arteta just keeps starting him. It's infuriating to see him have started Willian more consistently than he has Pepe when only the one player has a future on the pitch and it aint Willian. I concede that Pepe may have stuffed up his run with his sending off, Arteta seemed to be set to leave him and he got himself a 3 match ban. Stop start again since.

I think alot has worked against him just per chance of how he plays. First they were all banned from the middle and now they can go in there, he keeps getting lumbered with Willian giving it captain useless. I personally think he'll sort himself out soon. Team chaos plus covid is bad enough for your routine. Don't forget the man's in his first year of fatherhood (well they had a baby in the summer, I assumed first). Having raised 3 from baby, I can safely say 1 newborn alone could derail your footy for one, no problem.
A bonus of the baby however is Pepe could well start playing out of his socks later this year. When he's liberated from your greatest fear, as the baby turns 1. And he's no longer constantly sweating S.I.D.S (cot death).

Think the best we can hope for next summer will be finding a loan move for him - which I think will actually happen. Then it will be a question of hoping it goes well enough to either generate enough interest in him from a club to want to buy him, or for Arsenal to give him a second chance with us.

Think we’ll look to offload Willian similarly, though hopefully without the chance of returning.

Arsenal should be happy to unload Pepe for 30M.

Happy? Think they’d be ecstatic!

Maybe he’ll be better in a slower league like Serie A. For some reason, either poor coaching or himself, his talents aren’t being applied. He’s been so bad, I think 10mill is good enough to sell.

ZERO

We will not be able to sell this guy. He’s on something like £140k/week. Only the big boys can afford that and he’s nowhere good enough to play for any of them.

Also why do people keep saying to send him back to France when their league is on the verge of collapse. How the hell will any French club afford him?

He's not been that bad, jeez. You people are harsh man

I daresay we'd not actually see any actual cash in, since we haven't paid for him yet anyway. Not sure but I'd have thought whoever bought him so to speak, would simply take the player off our hands and pay off the rest of his fee. So letting him go now would still cost us the difference between his remaining fee and what they wanted to pay.

Your 10M for Pepe, right now would actually cost us 36M quid. I think we best just play him and hope for a little while longer

He needs to be loaned to a championship team for a season to toughen him up, he falls over at the slightest touch
