Arsenal, Barcelona warned '€100m won't get you Pepe'

Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe insists he has no problem with president Gerard Lopez shutting the door on a January move away.

Pepe is being watched by a raft of major clubs this season, including Barcelona and Arsenal.

However, Lopez insisted: "If Barcelona gives me €100m for Pepe? He will not leave this winter. I want him to continue, we want him to stay, he wants to stay. He will do the season."

In response, Pepe added: "The words of Gerard Lopez? It shows the affection he has for me, and that the club has for me. They show me that they care about me and that they want to see me in this project until the end of the season.

"That's good, it shows that I will stay closed for this winter, it suits me."
