Arsenal record deal slammed
Jermaine Jenas has described Nicolas Pepe’s signing as “bad business” for Arsenal.
When asked if Pepe would be considered among the league’s biggest flops from last summer transfer window when taking his £72m fee into account, Jenas said: “Oh yeah. That’s up there with Joelinton.
“It is the money, it is as simple as that. The amount of money spent on him in terms of what he has delivered and what you can actually see.
“A lot of people talk about Thierry Henry’s first season at Arsenal and it didn’t quite go for him straight away.
“They kind of lean on that a lot in these type of signings.
“But I’ve just not seen it with this particular player and it looks like bad business.”
Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool
Liverpool could be able to offer the No 6 shirt to Thiago Alcantara should Dejan Lovren seal his move to Zenit St Petersburg.
Lovren, who currently occupies the squad number, is on the brink of a £10.9million switch to the Russian outfit.
Thiago is in Jurgen Klopp’s sights after refusing to extend his contract with Bayern Munich.
Anfield chiefs have yet to contact the Bundesliga champions over a swoop, however.
