Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits he can't wait until Nicolas Pepe launches for Arsenal, after admitting he expects big things from the Gunners' record.
Arsenal broke their transfer record by agreeing to pay Lille £ 72 million for Ivoria's wing; Jose Mourinho, pronouncing his sentence on the signing and other acquisitions of the gunners during his analysis on Super Sunday.
Although Unai Emery chose to start Pepe on the bench during Sunday's 1-0 win in Newcastle, the player appeared as a late replacement – and Aubameang admits that he and his Gunners teammates are excited to see him at the beginning from the beginning.
"I look forward to him because he's a really great player," Aubameyang said.
"He has already shown in training that he is capable of doing great things with us. Hopefully soon.
The Gabonese striker ended last season as winner of the Premier League's Golden Shoe, with the player sharing the award with fellow Africans Mohammed Salah and Sadio Manet.
And the 30-year-ahead, who broadcast the Arsenal winner on Sunday, already dreaming of repeating the feat.
"As an attacker, of course, it's on his mind," he replied when asked about the Golden Shoe race. "But first, as I've always said, the most important is the team. I'm really happy that the goal can help us win the game. "
