Arsenal winger Pepe considering exit

Arsenal winger Pepe considering exit

Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe will look at his options after becoming increasingly frustrated at his lack of game time at the Emirates.

Pepe scored in the 2-1 defeat by France on Friday and the Ivory Coast winger has said: "I am focused on how well we do until the end of the season and the club’s target, which is getting into the Champions League. Then we will see what happens.

"When a team is winning it is hard for a coach to make changes. Mikel Arteta has explained that to me and the coach knows what I think and how hard I'm working. It has been a tough season for me. Of course, it is frustrating not to play but I have to respect the coach’s decision.

"I have improved since coming to London and English football is totally different from French football, particularly the intensity in the matches and I had to adapt physically and make that transition which I feel I have done."

The 26-year-old's contract with the Gunners is set to expire at the end of next season.
