Premier League clubs are ‘already afraid’ of Arsenal’s summer signing Nicolas Pepe, according to club’s legend Nwankwo Kanu.
The Gunners landed Pepe last month from Lille for a club-record fee of £72million and has so far made four appearances in the Premier League. However, the ex-Lille ace is yet to find the back of the net but he has so far impressed Kanu with his promising early showings in the English top-flight this season.
“He’s a good player. He’s got fast feet and I think he can unlock teams,” he said.
“He can score and he can assist. The league here is totally different from every other league so it takes time for somebody coming in to perform the way they have for their other clubs but I think he will do well for us because now he is getting more game time and I believe he will complement the other two strikers.”
“If you watch him you can see he is a really good footballer and his feet are very quick. He is going to score goals and he is going to play well. I believe that teams are already afraid of him after a few games. They are scared of what he can do and what he can offer. He’s a very good addition.”
