Chelsea, Arsenal scouts amazed by Porto winger Pepe

Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in Porto winger Pepe.

The 25-year-old Brazilian was first linked with the Gunners back in the summer.

However, his hefty price tag put off Mikel Arteta from making a moving.

Scouts have continued monitoring the star's progress this term, and a fresh report has claimed that both Arsenal and Premier League rivals Chelsea have been blown away by his performances.

A Bola he's left their talent spotters “with their mouths open".

And they are not the only clubs considering a move.

Italian giants Juventus are now believed to have placed him on their wishlist.

But any transfer move for the South American will be costly.

Porto are holding out for at least £65million for Pepe – which would trigger his release clause.
