Ian Wright believes Pepe has a chance to prove himself as an Arsenal striker.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Nicolas Pepe is about to have his last chance to prove himself good enough to continue playing at the club repoet by UFABET

Nicolas Pepe, 26, is contracted to Arsenal until the middle of 2024 for a club-record £72 million, but has failed to show a good match for the price. and expectations He has only played 12 games this season and has yet to score a goal in the Premier League this season. However, the absence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his good form with the Ivory Coast have convinced Wright that Pepe will have one last chance to prove himself.

“In the past, Arteta didn’t choose to use Pepe that much, but with his performances with the national team. I think he will get his last chance to prove his potential. I watched him play against the Ivory Coast, saw something from him. And I think he can do more than that. And why can’t we bring out those advantages?”

“If Arsenal choose to use him as a striker in the False 9 system or in a position where he can play freely. Take the ball to a duel with an opponent. It will be interesting that Arteta will try to use him instead of Aubameyang.”

“Losing Aubameyang is the loss of one man who has proven his potential, Emil Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka, despite scoring more goals than the Aubameyang team. old But no one has proven themselves as a goal scorer that many. Aubameyang can do it.”
