Arsenal are set to part ways with Nicolas Pepe when the transfer window reopens this summer, The Sun reports.

The Ivorian had an impressive end to the previous campaign, and he was touted to become a key player this term.

However, that has hardly been the case for him. Pepe has not started in the Premier League for more than six months.

According to The Sun, the Gunners are prepared to accept a significant loss while sanctioning his sale this summer.

Pepe was signed a staggering £72 million from Lille three years ago, but he could be offloaded for just £25m this year.

The 26-year-old is currently attracting interest from clubs in Italy and France, where he had built his reputation.

Aside from Pepe, the likes of Hector Bellerin and Pablo Mari are also expected to pursue permanent moves away.

Bellerin is currently on loan with Real Betis. Talks are already underway with the La Liga outfit over a £8m transfer.
