Arsenal Winger Nicolas Pepe Replies 'Nobody' When Asked Who His Toughest Opponent Has Been

Arsenal's club-record signing Nicolas Pepe says he doesn't not have a toughest opponent that he has played against in his career.

The Ivorian moved to North London from Lille for a whopping £72 million in the summer transfer window and has largely been underwhelming for the Gunners thus far.

However, the 24-year old still remains confident as ever and claimed that he doesn't have a toughest opponent when teammate Matteo Guendouzi put the question to him in a video for Arsenal's YouTube channel.

If it was Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo we'd be calling it "elite mentality" - but with Pepe has scored five goals in 27 appearances thus far, and only two coming from open play - he's not in the best position to not name any of his tough opponents.

But while he has struggled to get going for the Gunners, Pepe is confident that he will start producing the goods on a regular basis under Mikel Arteta.

"Things are definitely going better," he said, as per the Daily Mail.

"I am still learning and there is plenty of room for improvement, but in terms of understanding, things are definitely becoming easier.

"Mikel has explained exactly what he would like me to do on the pitch and shown me videos that have stressed the importance of my positioning.

"He's told me what he would like me to do to help me progress as a player."
