Two of Lille’s most promising attackers are going to undergo medicals tomorrow as their exits from the Northern France side edge ever closer.
L’Équipe report that 24-year-old Ivorian winger Nicolas Pépé will have a medical with Arsenal tomorrow afternoon after all remaining details were agreed between all relevant parties throughout today (Monday). The deal is €80m excluding bonuses, Pépé will sign a 5-year contract with The Gunners should the medical checks go as planned.
Rafael Leão in the meantime has already arrived in Italy ahead of a move to AC Milan for €35m. Lille signed the player from Sporting Portugal last summer on a free transfer and the 20-year-old Portuguese prospect had six offers 12 months later. His personal preference was AC Milan.
