After sealing his £72 million transfer from Lille to Arsenal, Nicolas Pepe has revealed that he is looking forward to playing alongside Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Mesut Ozil.
Arsenal are looking at the prospect of forging a dangerous attacking trio with Aubameyang, Lacazette, and Pepe playing upfront. They could also play with German playmaker Mesut Ozil in behind but the German sort of fell out of favor with Unai Emery especially towards the end of last season.
In an interview with the club’s official portal, Pepe revealed the first three players to come to mind when he thought about the prospect of playing for the Gunners, “The French guys who play here. Then I also thought of Özil, the world champions, Lacazette, Aubameyang and many more.
“Of course, these are the players who sprang to mind because I used to watch them when I was at Lille. Also, Lacazette used to play for Lyon and so I have had the opportunity to play against him and it will be an honor to play alongside him.”
