Arsenal flop Nicolas Pepe has been linked with a move to a couple of clubs across Europe with Spanish La Liga side Seville looking strongest to land him. Pepe has reportedly caught the eye of Los Rojiblancos Sporting Director Monchi and would again suit the system of manager Julen Lopetegui as he shares systematic similarities with Moyes. The Spaniard also has a fetish for inverted wingers and typically urges his full-backs to join the attack.
Seville Wants Nicolas Pepe
There could be a few difficulties to contend with as the former Spain boss likes to dominate possession and demands intense pressing to recover the ball quickly which is not a quality of the Ivorian International.
However, Lopetegui is known for giving his forwards license to make their own choices in the final third and employs a fluid offensive structure which the Ivorian would gain great benefit from, as he excels when permitted to vary the tempo and can use speed and trickery to dazzle the opponent.
It is a proposition that has pros and cons but, with Champions League football adding to the allure, a move to Seville may be one the player will not want to turn down since Arsenal could not make it to the Champions League.
