🇧🇪 Lokonga names the Arsenal player he's most excited to play with

Arsenal's new central midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga has admitted he is most excited about Nicolas Pepe in the Gunners squad.

The 21-year-old was signed from Belgian royalty Anderlecht for €17.5m, where he played 78 games as an all-action central midfielder with four goals and eight assists.

After impressing in his first appearance during Arsenal's 4-1 win over Milwall in a friendly, Sambi was available to look ahead to the coming new season.

"I think [Nicolas] Pepe [is the one I am most excited to link up with]," he said after he was asked which player he's most eager to play alongside.

"But I’m also looking forward to playing with [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, [Alexandre] Lacazette, [Bukayo] Saka also, so yeah, I hope to have a connection with all the players and quickly," Sambi concluded as quoted by Goal.

Arsenal's first Premier League game will be away to newcomers Brentford on 22 August.
