Lille chief Campos: Arsenal attacker Pepe football mad

Lille sporting director Luis Campos is full of praise for Nicolas Pepe.

The Ivory Coast striker left LOSC for Arsenal this past summer.

Campos said, "For me, one of the characteristics of a top, top player is that he loves football.

"I remember when I worked with Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappé. They knew everything about football. Mbappé knew all the results of the French Ligue 2. Nicolas Pepe is like that.

"It is one more example of the importance of a player's love of football. After a game, he re-examined the images twice to improve."
