OGC Nice Mercato: To satisfy the request of Lucien Favre, who is calling for reinforcements, the Gym has struck a blow in attack, by signing an Arsenal player.

Left LOSC in the summer of 2019, Nicolas Pepe returns to Ligue 1, thanks to OGC Nice. Le Gym recruited him from Arsenal for one season, in the form of a loan, but without an option to buy. The information is released by The Team, pending the formalization of the signing of the Ivorian international striker (34 caps, 9 goals) by the management of the Aiglons. “Arsenal have reached an agreement with the Riviera club for the loan, without option to buy, of the former Lille player. The Nice leaders have managed to overcome the obstacle represented by the player’s salary in recent days. But they could not include a purchase option, “said the sports daily, while indicating that Nicolas Pépé will be available from this weekend, during the shock against OM, Sunday (3 p.m.).

As a reminder, OGC Nice has recorded 2 draws and a defeat and is in 16th place in Ligue 1, with 2 small points in 3 days. In the Europa League Conference, Lucien Favre’s team lost the first leg of the play-offs against Maccabi Tel-Aviv (1-0) in Israel. The return match is scheduled for Thursday (8 p.m.) at the Allianz Riviera.

Having failed to qualify for the Champions League last season, OGC Nice is working hard this summer to finish on the podium. To do this, the management of the Alpes-Maritimes club took out the checkbook to recruit top players. The Gym has thus transferred the Danish goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel (35) from Leicester City (Premier League). The Nice have also recruited Aaron Ramsey (Welsh international midfielder, 31) from Juventus (Serie A). Nicolas Pépé is therefore the third seasoned player at the top level, whom the Gym has attracted this summer.
