Lille chief Luis Campos explains why Nicolas Pepe will be a success at Arsenal

Lille sporting director Luis Campos has no doubt Nicolas Pepe will succeed at Arsenal and has revealed the lengths the winger goes to in order to perfect his game.

Pepe became Arsenal’s club-record signing this summer when he completed a £72million move to the Emirates from Lille, though he has only scored once – from the penalty spot – for his new club.

Although the Ivorian has not quite lived up to his price tag so far, Campos says his hard work and willingness to improve are reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo and has backed him to come good.
