How many of you waited all day for an Arsenal announcement over the signing of Nicolas Pepe?
Meanwhile, Arsenal didn’t announce it even though we all know it’s done and they’re just waiting to maximise the impact of the #content.
Unai Emery was asked about the capture of the Ivorian international after the whatever the hell happened against Angers.
He said of Pepe, “He played here in Angers a few years ago, and then in Lille. He has progressed as a player.
“We are speaking about a lot of players, we want to select on players who can really help us, give us big performances and improve our squad. We have different options.
“This one at the moment is not closed, but he is one we are following.”
As for his ability to play with Aubameyang, he continued, “Yes first because he is left footed.
“We have a left footer in Bukayo (Saka), a young player who has a big future for us. For example on the winger one left-footed player can play on one side or the other.
“It can give us different options.”
Our first option is gonna be a £72m signing though. Woo-hoo!
