Nicolas Pepe Has Put Fear Into Arsenal Rival– Kanu Nwankwo

An Arsenal Legend Kanu Nwankwo believes summer signing Nicolas Pepe has also put fear into the club’s rivals.

The Ivory Coast international arrived at the Emirates during the summer, signing from Ligue 1 side Lille in a club-record £72 million ($89m) deal.

And the 24-year-old winger has already proved to be a real handful in his early appearances for the Gunners.

Nicolas pepe was also the first player in 50 Premier League matches to dribble past Virgil van Dijk when he skipped past the Liverpool centre-back during his full debut at Anfield.

So it’s been a good start to life in north London for Nicolas  Pepe, who started alongside Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the first time during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham immediately before the international break.

Kanu Nwankwo – who won two Premier League titles during his five-year stay with the Gunners between 1999 and 2004 – has already seen enough to know that Pepe will be a huge hit at his former club.

He’s got fast feet and I think he can unlock teams. He can score and he can assist.

“The league here is totally different from every other league so it takes time for somebody coming in to perform the way they have for their other clubs.
