    In last 2 seasons he had even in French league he been on form wingers in Europe so between 50-60m should be fair the same amount we paid for laca who scored 100 goals in 3 seasons

    OP is Balague saying we made contact in November.

    We all know Balague is Raul’s bit on the side.

    Love Pepe, would take him over Zaha every day of the week and twice on Sundays. Fine playing 80M, would sell Auba to get him. He was in my Wish List post.

    Younger than Zaha, more creative, better passer, more end product, bigger defensive contribution, higher ceiling. Zaha is more physical and of course he's proven in the PL. Similar dribbling ability - both are elite - but Zaha is dispossessed more often.

    One big advantage is Pepe plays on the right, cutting in on his left. This is a better fit for Arsenal, as Iwobi and Auba (when paired with Laca) strongly prefer the left. We bring in Pepe and there are plenty of options on the left. Bring in Zaha and Mkhi is really the only one comfortable on the right. Özil could play there as could Nelson, but Özil is much better centrally and Nelson fits best in Emery's system on the left, cutting inside.

    I did say that if you're willing to go big for Zaha, you might as well get Pepe. Frustrating that 80m still only gets you a good prospect, the market is bonkers.

    Zaha and Saliba offers = Pepe.

    Might have lost out on Saliba and decided to throw it on a winger.

    Zaha is 27 at the start of the season.
    no resale value there if we ever sell him.
    Pepe is 24. Resale value is there if he ever leaves.

    Pepe also had a better season and is rated more. Surely he is 20 mil more then Zaha, at least

    Because you can't even trust orny these days. The club could have told him we didn't make bid so we keep things private

    If its agent try to get best deal for Pepe then using our name is bad idea
