Mikel Arteta believes that Nicolas Pepe has made significant strides forward this season.
The Ivory Coast international has seven goals and three assists to his name in 2020/21, and our manager says the best is yet to come from our No 19.
"He's had some really good matches and scored some important goals as well and I think that has helped him for the Premier League form and the recent form that he's shown," Arteta said.
"I've seen a lot of things, in his mentality, the way he approaches every training session, in his understanding of the game as well. It's true that he has patches where he's played more than at other times.
"He has had the opportunity over the last couple of months that probably every player has been seeking to have but I think overall there is a lot of progress with Nico."
