Former Liverpool great Graeme Souness speaks very highly of Nicolas Pepe.
Nicolas Pepe put in a magical performance against Newcastle on Sunday contributing a goal and two assists and Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness was absolutely gushing about the 24-year-old.
I really want to reveal what he had to say about Pepe but that would spoil the clip below, however, I will say that Souness knows huge potential when he sees it, he has played with and against some of the best in the game and I am not going to argue with his assessment of the Ivorian hit-man.
His fellow pundit Chris Houghton is more laid back in his opinion but still recognises what a talent Pepe really is.

“Their best ever player Thierry didn’t have the best first year. I think he will be a star here”
Graeme Souness has been impressed with Nicolas Pepe despite his critics this season
