Nicolas Pepe joined Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
Gary Lineker has predicted on Twitter that Nicolas Pepe will eventually come good for Arsenal.
The former Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City striker made the prediction about Pepe while responding to Rodney Marsh.
The ex-Queens Park Rangers and Manchester City forward asked Lineker whether he stills thinks that the Ivory Coast international is suited to the Gunners.
Marsh asked the question following Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Pepe came on as a substitute in the 77th minute, and Lineker believes that the 24-year-old winger will eventually turn on the style for the Gunners.
