Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has urged frustrated Arsenal fans to be patient with summer signing Nicolas Pepe.
Pepe signed for Arsenal from Lille in the summer for a reported fee of £72million and has since then struggled to make an impact in Gunners' shirt. And his countryman, who was linked with a move to the Gunners in the summer, stood up for his Ivorian countryman.
"I see the social media, I see everything and it's a thing where he needs time. He's come from another league, he's young," said Zaha.
"There's this price tag that he has not put on himself, people have put that on him because of his performances. So you've got to give him time for him to reproduce that, it's not going to come like that," he added.
And the Crystal Palace ace is fully confident that Pepe will come good if he is given time to produce his best form at the Emirates.
