Arsenal confirm signing of Nicolas Pepe from Lille

Nicolas Pepe Paulo Dybala

The Gunners haven't won the Premier League title since 2004 when Arsene Wenger's side finished the season unbeaten.

Ligue 1 runners-up Lille on Thursday announced the departure of attacking duo Nicolas Pepe and Rafael Leao to Arsenal and AC Milan respectively.

Unai Emery recently described Pepe as a "very good player" who can "really improve" his Arsenal squad.

Now, Italian club Napoli are reportedly interested in signing the winger, who previously played for Manchester United.

Pepe has been in England since Tuesday morning when he travelled to Arsenal's training centre at London Colney to undergo a medical and meet his new team-mates.

Speaking to the press ahead of Celtic's season opener at home to St Johnstone this Saturday, he said: "Normally these things tend to happen again so it would not surprise me, put it that way".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery, 47, expressed his delight at capturing the Ivorian winger as his marquee summer signing.

The Frisco, Texas police department did not immediately respond to the Daily Mail's request for comment. Morris played for the Cowboys in 2016-17 and was with the San Francisco 49ers last season.

Alex Iwobi is one of those players that splits opinion among Arsenal fans, anyone reading the comments on this website would know that and that was before Dani Ceballos and Nicolas Pepe signed.

The 24-year-old will be tasked with bringing creativity and pace to the wide areas of Arsenal's team in the 2019-20 Premier League season.

The deadline passed earlier this week with no big changes whilst Hatem Abd Elhamed - a recent signing for the full-back positions - has come in.

The Gunners will desperately want Lacazette to be fully fit for the start of the season after he was voted their player of the season for the 2018/19 campaign - scoring 19 goals and getting 13 assists in all competitions.

It added that Pepe inked a contract with his new club Arsenal, keeping him at the Emirates Stadium until 2024.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will continue their pre-season preparations on Sunday when they play Barcelona at Camp Nou on Sunday at 7pm.
