Freddie Ljungberg explains how he plans to improve Nicolas Pepe at Arsenal

Freddie Ljungberg has revealed he will have a one on one chat with Nicolas Pepe after the Ivorian has struggled to adapt to the Premier League.

Pepe became Arsenal's most expensive signing after joining from French club Lille in the July transfer window for £72million.

Since his move, the winger is yet to find his footing in the league and has not started any of Arsenal's last four games as he was unused in the 2-2 draw against Norwich City.

Ljungberg revealed how he plans to improve Pepe's game at Arsenal, "Nicolas is a very, very good player. Sometimes we come from a different league and it takes time to adapt, off the pitch and on the pitch.

"Nicolas is someone I plan on talking to, we’re going to have a little chat about how he feels about things. He’s an important player.

"I just think it’s a new country, a new way of playing and I’m going to have a little chat with him about what I expect and how I want to play."

Pepe is again likely to start from the bench when Arsenal take on Brighton and Hove Albion on Thursday in an 11:15 PM (EAT) kick-off at the Emirates Stadium.
