The Ivory Coast international will complete a switch to the Gunners this week in a deal reportedly worth £72m.
And former West Ham defender Fonte has talked up Pepe as a potential Premier League superstar.
"He is super quick, he has a left foot which is silky, one vs one he is second to none.
"He finishes really good, he takes penalties, he takes free kicks, he is a very, very accomplished player and I think Arsenal fans will be in for a treat for sure."
