Video: Nicolas Pepe season highlights show Arsenal’s record signing deserves patience

Nicolas Pepe is a slow-starter who’ll be worth waiting for.

There’s no denying it – Nicolas Pepe has not had the easiest start to life at Arsenal, but those writing him off already need to take a long, hard look in the mirror.

Check out this quality video below, which shows some of Pepe’s fancy footwork, intelligent play, and of course, some superb goals.

There’s a reason Arsenal paid a club-record £72million for the Ivorian last summer (as per BBC Sport) and most top players would struggle in our set-up this season.

Pepe had to start out under the struggling Unai Emery and is now adjusting to a new manager in Mikel Arteta, and has had to do his best in a team lacking in quality, cohesion and confidence in most areas of the pitch.

This video shows some truly immense natural ability is there, and Pepe’s time will come.

    That’s exactly Pepe’s problem, he watches too much youtube. He playes for youtube. A game is 90 minutes, I’m watching that. He owns us performances big time.

    Gervinho is twice better than this man
    We have one lazy playmaker
    And now we also have a lazy winger
    Pires also had difficult at his first time here
    But his not lazy as pepe
    Potential to be worst buying in season

    I doubt he’ll make it in Epl, too slow and inconsistent, I hope am wrong anyway, 72m should not be wasted like that.
