How Nicolas Pepe’s 2020-21 stats compare to his first season at Arsenal
After a difficult start to his Arsenal career, Nicolas Pepe is finally starting to show signs that he is getting back to his best form.
Pepe, who joined the Gunners from Lille in a £72million deal in 2019, displayed glimpses of his talent but struggled to adapt to the Premier League in 2019-20.
The Ivory Coast international faced further criticism after being sent off for headbutting Ezgjan Alioski during their 0-0 draw with Leeds in November 2020.
He was linked with a move away from the Emirates but has turned things around in recent months and is currently enjoying his best spell in an Arsenal shirt.
