Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is excited to play alongside Arsenal new signing Nicolas Pepe.
Unai Emery is also keen on easing Pepe into his starting eleven.
Aubameyang, who converted the one real opportunity to score Arsenal mustered at St James’ Park hopes his fellow attacker will soon be in the starting line-up.
“I’m looking forward to it, because he’s a really great player,’ he said.
“He’s already shown in training that he’s capable of doing great things with us. Hopefully he will start soon.’
Pepe could be given his full debut for Arsenal in their next match, which is scheduled for Saturday against Burnley in the Gunners’ first home game of the new campaign.
