Nicolas Pepe continues to toil
When Arsenal paid £72million to sign Nicolas Pepe from Lille in 2019, they thought they were onto a winner.
But the Ivory Coast international continues to struggle for form and, against Southampton, misfired again.
Martin Keown continually bemoaned Pepe’s anonymous display on commentary for BT Sport.
And Arsenal, 18 months on, are still looking to see the best from the Ivorian.
Whether he can come good in the coming weeks and months ahead remains to be seen. But, on this evidence, fans shouldn’t get their hopes up.
