HAPPY MORNING and NIGHT
Nicolas Pepe’s future at Arsenal is becoming increasingly uncertain after owner Mikel Arteta derided.
The Gunners’ £72m record signing was an unused substitute in the 2-1 loss to Everton on Monday night.
But it leaves the question of where Ivory Coast star Pepe is in the dissection order – as he hasn’t appeared since October 30.
And even in that game against Leicester, he was limited to just five minutes of play.
Meanwhile, Emmanuel Dennis’ agent, Drew Uyi, claims the Watford striker could be continuing to trade with Arsenal or Manchester United.
He said: “Arsenal have been interested in (signing Dennis) in the past.
“Manchester United are also interested, but Club Brugge wants a ridiculous fee for him.
“They want £25m, while these clubs are prepared to pay £15m.
“In the end, he joined Watford for £3.4m because his contract was coming to an end. He was frustrated at Club Brugge.”
Finally, Piers Morgan insists Arteta is not good enough to be Arsenal manager.
He tweeted: “This is why I don’t think Arteta is good enough to be Arsenal manager.
“We were completely underdog against a team that hadn’t won in eight games. It was scary.
“We’ve lost six games in the League this season, including all the top teams. Now we’re also losing to struggling teams.
“Arteta has had over 100 games, has spent a lot of money and hasn’t gotten us anywhere.”
