Arsenal fans are still buzzing from the announcement of club record signing Nicolas Pepe.

The Gunners broke their transfer record to sign Ivorian winger Nicolas Pepe from Lille.

The 24-year-old signed a five-year contract in north London after the Gunners put the finishing touches on a structured deal that is worth approximately £72million.

That fee – to be paid in instalments with the club’s transfer budget for the current summer standing at £40m – eclipses the £56m that Arsenal paid Borussia Dortmund for striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January 2018.

The Ivorian winger was given the Number 19 Jersey and appears to have completed his first Arsenal training session.

With that in mind Emery might look to give the Ivorian a few minutes under his belt when Arsenal play their final preseason game against Barcelona on Sunday.

Arsenal’s first game of the Premier League season is against Newcastle on the 11th of August.
