Former Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe has bidded farewell to the club in an incredibly brief message on Instagram after joining Trabzonspor this summer.

The winger struggled to find his form of the past after joining Arsenal for £72million back in 2019.

He made over 80 appearances for the Gunners, netting just 16 goals in his time in London.

Pepe spent last season on loan at Nice but failed to make an impact and was allowed to leave Arsenal this summer after they terminated his contract to allow him to move to Trabzonspor.

Taking to Instagram, Pepe has delivered a short farewell message as he wrote: ‘Gunners fam’ with a heart and saluting emoji.

The Gunners’ former record signing wrote just two words to say farewell to the Arsenal fans

Their previous record signing opted out of a longer farewell message as he begins life in Turkey.

Arsenal were keen to offload their deadwood this summer and there was no future for Pepe, with both Bukayo Saka and Reiss Nelson ahead of him in the pecking order at the Emirates.

The Gunners will be hoping to push on after the international break, beating Manchester United 3-1 in their last match.

Having made a huge loss on Pepe, Mikel Arteta will be keen to put the signing behind him and look to a future of challenging at the top of the Premier League.
