Nicolas Pepe: Why I chose Arsenal over PSG and Bayern Munich

Nicolas Pepe has explained his decision to join Arsenal.

The attacker's former St Etienne coach Christophe Galtier had spoken of Pepe joining PSG last summer.

But Pepe explained to Canal Football Club: "Galtier imagined me at PSG? He even imagined Bayern in what he said. For me, this is a choice that can surprise because it is a club that does not play the Champions League, but it is also a club that has a lot of ambitions, we also play the Europa League, it's also a European competition where we have the goal to win.

"The coach is used to this competition, he already won with Sevilla, last year they were in the final. The goal is to do better, so to win this competition."
