NICOLAS PEPE appears to have committed his future to Arsenal.
The Gunners are open to the £72million winger leaving this summer.
But there has been a lack of concrete interest in the club’s record signing.
And now Pepe himself has revealed he is “determined” to continue with the Gunners.
The Ivory Coast international has vowed he has worked hard on his game over the summer break having netted just three goals in all competitions last season.
Pepe posted a picture to his Instagram account of himself in pre-season action.
The winger captioned the upload: “I worked hard during the summer. Change lot of things. Im focus and determined with @arsenal and my teammates.”
Pepe has been part of boss Mikel Arteta’s squad in pre-season, starting two of the club’s four games, and coming on as a sub in the other two.
Arsenal though are keen to shift the deadwood this summer in order to free up funds for new arrivals.
The Gunners have already signed five new players this transfer window.
Although a lack of interest in Pepe could see him stay put in North London.
