The reason why Arsenal should sign Nicolas Pepe

Arsenal are interested in signing Nicolas Pepe from LOSC Lille.

Ivory Coast international has emerged as one of the best attacking players in French league.

Pepe has scored 12 times and is leading the goalscoring race with PSG star Kylian Mbappe.

Unai Emery has recently spoken out on Arsenal transfer plans on January.

“January is not a good transfer window for this reason, but we are going to look and the club is working for transfers in January.”

One statistics shows that Pepe can play a key role in Unai Emery’s tactics.

According to, Nicolas has won possession in the attacking third 18 times this season. This is the statistics that Mesut Ozil, for example, lacks right now. Unai Emery doesn’t use German international. In the latest Carabao Cup match against Tottenham Ozil was not included in the squad because of ‘tactical reasons’.

And one of the tactical reasons for Unai Emery is lack of intensity in opposite third of the pitch.
