Nicolas Pepe Withdraws From Ivory Coast Squad

Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe has withdrawn from the Ivory Coast squad to work on his health in London.

It’s understood the 24-year-old doesn’t have an injury and will return to London Colney to prepare for the upcoming Premier League fixtures.

Pepe did spend a short time with his national squad during the international break but both Arsenal and the Ivorian federation agreed it was best that he did not feature in the coming friendlies against Benin and Tunisia.

The 24-year-old joined Arsenal from Lille for a club-record £72m fee in August but was late to join up with the squad following his exploits at the African Cup of Nations in the summer, where Ivory Coast reached the quarter-finals.
