Nice have agreed a deal to sign Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe on a season-long loan.

The deal for the 27-year-old Ivory Coast international does not include an option for the Ligue 1 club to make the deal permanent.

The last details are being finalised and it's hoped it will be completed in the next 48 hours.

Pepe, who has two years left on his Arsenal contract, moved to the Emirates from Lille for a club-record £72m in 2019 and has scored 27 goals in 112 appearances for the Gunners.
