Arsenal striker Lacazette: Pepe will prove Premier League class

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette says Nicolas Pepe is gradually settling into life at London Colney.

The summer arrival from Lille has battled for consistency so far this season.

But Lacazette told RMC Sport: "He's slowly starting to speak English.

"On the field, he understands more and more the requirement of the Premier League.

"We must give him time. With the qualities he has, when he has assimilated everything, I do not worry about the level he will reach within the club."
