AC Milan are reportedly interested in signing out-of-favour Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe in January.

The Ivorian has struggled for regular game time in recent months, and reports suggest that he is likely to be sold.

Crystal Palace have already been linked with a shock approach and Il Milanista claims that Milan are also keen.

Pepe was recruited by the north London giants for £75m, but they could sell him for just £25m this winter.

The 26-year-old was a regular starter at the beginning of the campaign, but he has gone out-of-favour of late.

He has played five minutes of league football over the past four games, and could soon head for the exit door.

Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe are now undisputed starters out wide.

Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli have also been preferred ahead of the Ivorian over the past few games.

The Gunners are currently fifth in the league standings with 20 points, three adrift of the Champions League places.
