Ivory Coast teammates Wilfried Zaha and Salomon Kalou have spoken out about Pepe’s snoring.
“Former Chelsea and Crystal Palace stars avoided rooming with Nicolas Pepe,” Sports Bible reported on Sept. 9 (KST).
Nicolas Pepe was the best winger in the French Ligue 1. He is naturally very athletic and creates a lot of chances by carrying the ball and breaking away. He also has a unique left-footed kick, which earned him a place in the Ligue 1’s official best 11 in the 2018/2019 season with 22 assists and 11 goals.
Based on this performance, Arsenal signed him for a transfer fee of 100 billion. In his first two seasons at the club, he performed adequately and led the team, but his transfer fee of 100 billion was widely considered overrated.
In the 2021/2022 season, he was a disaster. He was terrible, unable to dribble and unable to score goals, managing just three goals and six assists in 22 league games. To make matters worse, he lost his place in the starting lineup and was labeled an “all-time great”.
Pepe, who is under contract until June 2024, spent last season on loan at OGC Nice in France, but he failed to make the grade there, and his departure from Arsenal seemed increasingly likely. However, Pepe’s huge wages and falling price tag have made a move difficult.
Last summer, Arsenal’s sporting director acknowledged this difficulty, saying that the number of buyers was very limited due to his underperformance and high salary.
More recently, Besiktas have already said they want to sign him, but Pepe has rejected them. ‘Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe has reportedly rejected a move to Turkish giants Besiktas,’ soccer specialist Cut Off Side reported on July 21 (KST).
According to the outlet, Pepe is also reportedly receiving high interest from a team in the Saudi Professional League. Arsenal were reportedly negotiating a transfer fee for the striker, and a currently unknown club wanted to take Pepe to the Middle East this summer.
However, the Saudis rejected the offer and he eventually joined Trabzonspor of Turkiye as a free agent.
Zaha and Pepe know each other because they played together on the Ivory Coast national team, but Zaha 카지노 doesn’t seem to like being Pepe’s roommate when he’s on the national team. The reason for this is that Pepe snores so loudly that Zaha can’t control it. Former Chelsea player Kalou had a similar experience.
In an interview with the On the Judy podcast in 2021, Zaha said, “I asked Pepe to please leave the room. I asked him to leave the room because it sounded like a motorcycle. It was crazy. I moved him to Salomon Kalou’s room, and he was like, ‘I know, I moved him, too,'” he said.
