The former Ligue 1 stars have lined up against each other in France, and Pepe says it will be "an honour" to line up together.
 
"When I knew I was coming to Arsenal, I immediately thought of the French guys who play here," Pepe told Arsenal.com.
 
"I thought of Özil, the world champions, Lacazette, Aubameyang and many more. Of course, these are the players who sprang to mind because I used to watch them when I was at Lille.
 
"Also, Lacazette used to play for Lyon and so I have had the opportunity to play against him. It will be an honour to play alongside him."
