NICOLAS PEPE was greeted warmly in Trabzon due to the enthusiasm of Arsenal supporters.
The 28-year-old signed for the Turkish side after the Gunner tore up his contract and allowed him to leave for nothing despite the fact that he still had one year left on it.
A special greeting was given to Nicola Pepe when he landed in Turkey.
The former Arsenal player met a Trabzonspor supporter at the airport.
His £72 million transfer to The Gunner failed, and e a departed for free.
Pepe moved from Lille to Arsenal in 2019 for a then-club-record sum of £72 million.
The failure, though, struggled to make an impact in the Premier League, scoring just 27 goals in 112 games before being sent on loan to Nice last season.
Mikel Arteta did not want the winger, therefore the team eventually forced him out and reached an agreement with Trabzonspor.
Pepe was met at the airport by ardent fans after his private plane touched down in his new home.
The crowd gathered around him as the Ivorian leader led the cannons with a fresh supporter.
Pepe hopped up and forth in a Trabzonpor uniform with a huge grin on his face.
Arѕenal fanѕ are pleaѕed to ѕee Һim ѕmile after a tougҺ time in NortҺ London, one ѕaid: “He juѕt lookѕ Һappу again.”
AnotҺer added: “He will do well for ѕure, wiѕҺ Һim tҺe beѕt.”
A tҺird commented: “Glad Һe’ѕ Һappу and enjoуing Һimѕelf, far better tҺan being in a place wҺere Һe iѕn’t wanted.”
AltҺougҺ Even though Pepe’s nightmare at the Arsenal is over, my former employee is still not free of it.
The club is thought to still owe Lille £10 million of the £72 million they agreed to pay for him four years ago.
Additionally, the deal’s organizational structure remained same long after Pepe left the Emirate.
The club now has £150,000 in wages due to my leaving, though.
