Arsenal’s former club record signing Nicolas Pepe has joined Turkish side Trabzonspor on a free transfer, ending a disappointing three-year spell at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners, who paid £72m to sign the Ivory Coast winger from Lille in 2019, agreed to terminate his contract.

He scored 27 goals in 112 games for Arsenal and spent last season on loan with French side Nice.

Pepe, 28, was not involved in any of Arsenal’s matchday squads this season.

He had been their record signing until the £100m arrival of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice this summer.

Trabzonspor are seventh in the Turkish Super Lig and in a video posted on the club’s Twitter account,external-link Pepe said: “I came here to become a champion and achieve success”.
