Reports in Turkey suggest a private plane is ready to head to London to pick up the player.

Pepe has one year left on his deal at the Emirates Stadium and it has been claimed that his contract could be mutually terminated to facilitate the transfer.

The 28-year-old signed for Arsenal in 2019 from Lille for a then club record fee of £72million.

He played 112 times for the club across three seasons, scoring 27 goals.

Pepe was then loaned out to Nice last term but failed to do enough to convince Mikel Arteta to hand him a second chance at the Gunners.

The Ivorian has since been ordered to train alone and was not offered a shirt number in the club's attempts to force him out.

Pepe earns a supposed £150,000-a-week, meaning Arsenal would have to fork out an additional £6.5m in wages if his move to Trabzonspor falls through.

The team based in the north of Turkey won the league two years ago and crashed out of the Conference League last term in the knockout play-off round by Basel.

Pepe is set to play alongside former Aston Villa star Trezeguet, ex-Leicester defender Filip Benkovic and Southampton flop Mislav Orsic at his new club.

Trabzonspor currently sit seventh in the league table after four matches.
