Throughout his time in North London, the Ivorian has proven flashes of brilliance, however his consistency has been questioned. Pepe has already been publicly chastised by Arteta throughout his time in cost, and the following few months could also be pivotal in his Arsenal profession.
Pepe bought off to a good begin in 2021, beginning on the left facet.
However he has steadily misplaced favor once more, and he had a poor efficiency for Arsenal of their 3-0 loss to Liverpool.
Arsenal should hand over on Pepe, in line with Carragher, as a result of he would by no means make it for them.
