So according to David Ornstein:

"Arsenal have reached an agreement with Lille to sign Ivory Coast winger Nicolas Pepe for ~€80m, paid by instalments to fit #AFC budget. 5yr deal, agent agreement still needed but set to be closed in next 24/ 48hrs. Napoli also have agreement with #LOSC but agent rejected proposal"

Arsenal are going to ourspend us aren't they?

Is there a trophy for "outspending" all comers?

The same arsenal that can't afford Zaha for less than the fee quoted here?

Yh that's how it works usually Scooby, sell Lukaku and our net spend will be close to nil, ambition!

Also read somewhere (probably slysports) that he's joining Napoli.

Welsh Red Devil. Smoke screen whilst working this deal perhaps. Villa spending £100m and AFC have only £45m. Can't see that being true.

Scoobydog- Nice banter but the point here is Arsenal already have two potent goalscoring forwards in Laca and Auba and are still adding more.

United on the other hand have only signed a raw talent in that department.

Haha player we are linked with signs for someone else, this site goes into meltdown, so obvious and so boring. United has worries about Pepe’s attitude and if we paid £80m for him when we are in desperate need of a defender and midfielder people would be moaning saying we are overpaying. It’s hilarious.

Scholes, I assume your ‘net spend’ post is a joke, united have spent a lot of money in recent years, your post makes absolutely no sense.

Its starting to get ridiculous now that we haven't got at least 2 more signings if this board let's us down again its a disgrace were supposed to be one of the richest clubs in the world its an absolute joke.

2 weeks of the window left yet, Maguire and Fernandes are just acceptable offers away from being United players, Pogba and Lukaku may leave but with the academy kids doing so well and the aforementioned signings I'd be pretty happy with that. Not convinced we need to replace Lukaku with James, Greenwood, Martial, Rashford, Lingard and the way Ole wants to play, he could well leave before serie a window closes, pogba stays if our window closes without a replacement (SMS) bought imo.

I think some have missed the point re my "outspending" trophy remark. Oh well.

Don't worry. Woody will put in a bid of £25M. That'll shake 'em.

Ed002 has clearly stated on the rumours sites that Pepe will not be joining Arsenal. I think I'll believe him.

Elaborate? GDS2

Welsh if it's just a case of agreeing fees would it not be better to get them wrapped up asap so OLE can get them integrated into the team before season starts.

I agree Scott it would be but as per ed002 United negotiators not covering themselves in glory where doing deals is concerned atm.

Exactly its far too slow oles got the squad all singing from the same hymn sheet and got the youngsters playing brilliant but he needs help we need 2 positions filled AM and a CB and 2 of the the best want to come so just pay the money.
I think if we can get MAGUIRE and FERNANDES in we can get top 4 no problem.

Let’s not worry about who other clubs sign.
The time to judge will be when the window closes.

Sorry, Sychlops. Just read it. Still stick to believing what Ed002 says though. ;)
