Arsenal’s Nicolas Pepe names his toughest rival in the Premier League

Arsenal's Nicolas Pepe names his toughest rival in the Premier League

Pepe’s season at Arsenal

Nicolas Pepe joined Arsenal in the summer of 2019 from Lille.

The gunners paid a staggering £ 72 million to take the Ivorian to North London.

And while a player, of course, has no control over his price, to say that Pepe has since failed to come close to justifying such a fee would be to take it lightly.

Both Unai Emery, who has made public that actually wanted to sign Wilfried Zaha over Pepe, and Mikel Arteta, they have struggled to get the best out of the talented open man.

Pepe would have a brilliant finish to the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, which saw him score five in his last three league outings of the season.

However, he has since struggled to emulate that form throughout the new season.

He would score one and help one against a very weak West Brom team in the League Cup. But Pepe’s exhibitions at the PL this quarter have not been anything to write home about.

Pepe’s toughest rival in the Premier League

Regardless, Pepe has now scored close to a century of appearances for the Gunners, with 63 of those outings in the Premier League.

This has seen Pepe take on almost all of the best full-backs in the league today. And now, the 26-year-old has moved to name his toughest PL opponent.

According to him Mirror, when asked who has been his toughest opponent in the Premier League so far, Pepe told Amazon Prime Video that it was Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, stating:

“I really enjoy watching him play. Wan-Bissaka would say. I think it is very strong in both areas ”.
