Arsenal Ready €35m Funds To Sign 23 Years Old Electric Pace Dribbler

Arsenal are the favorites to land younger Winger who plays for the French side Lille amid interests from Real Betis, Sevilla and Lyon who are all interested for the young winger's signature. On the sports news according to The Mirror, Arsenal are the will have to battle Sevilla, Lyon and Real Betis to land the Lille Winger Nicolas Pepe, Arsenal who are the favorites will have to part with €35m or more to recruit the pacey winger.

The 23 year old Ivory Coast international scored 13 goals in 36 appearances which in my opinion is a good return for a winger. He has started this season firing on all cylinders already by scoring and providing an assist in Lille's first game of the new season against fellow Ligue 1 outfits Rennes.

The young Ivorian put pen to paper with Lille in June of 2017 on a five-year deal and the French side has already turned down of more than  €28m last season. Arsenal's premier league rivals Southampton had a bid of €12.5m turned in the summer

Nicolas Pepe is very good on the ball and has an eye for picking out accurate through and long balls to assist the strikers in scoring, with a pas rate of 1.1 per game in 36 appearances, that means he created more than 40 chances last season.
Nicolas' electric pace and direct running with ball is what defenders are terrified of especially on the counter-attacks and he has an eye for goal with 13 from 36 appearances as a winger shows he's a goal-getter.

My Opinion

In the whole Arsenal squad we have only one natural winger right now. Who is that? Alex Iwobi. Just only him, exclude him and the whole front line is made up of strikers and attacking playmakers, it won't really be a bad idea if Unai Emery gets Nicolas Pepe or someone like him who will be unpredictable when he has the ball.

In the next article, I will be discussing the possible longer term replacement of our captain Laurent Koscielny who is 32 now and won't play forever, our back line has been shaky without Koscielny and I hope he returns real quick and strong to boss up that shaky back line.
