Arsenal boss Emery ponders January move for Barcelona target Pepe

Arsenal boss Unai Emery hasn't ruled out moving for Lille winger Nicolas Pepe in January.

The Ivory Coast international is one of the early revelations of this season and being watched closely by Barcelona.

Like the Catalans, Le 10 Sport says Arsenal have made contact with Lille and Pepe's minders to let them know he's being scouted this season.

And on current form, Gunners boss Emery is open to welcoming Pepe to London Colney either in the summer - or as early as January.

Lille and Lyon agreed a €30m fee for Pepe last month, only for the winger to turn down the move.
