English Premier League outfit Arsenal have long been in the pursuit of French Ligue 1 outfit Lille forward Nicolas Pepe but sadly, he is only dreaming of joining their West London rivals Chelsea.

This is according to an a 2017 video which resurfaced revealing how the star player hinted that he would rather choose the West Londoners over the North London outfit.

According to the video, Chelsea is the only English Premier League side Nicolas Pepe will dream to play for, not minding the interest from Arsenal and Tottenham.

A number of top guns have been seeking for the signature of the star player with Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona also keen on his signature as well but the French Ligue 1 outfit have been able to keep hold of the in-form player against other suitors.

However, it is unclear if the stand of the Ivory Coast international stands with the big interest already shown by the Gunners team for him.

Suggestions are that the Lille forward will reconsider his stand, knowing that he will not secure regular playing time at the Stamford Bridge and might not be able to win the competition in the Italian manager Maurizio Sarri’s team at the moment.
