Pires says Arsenal's Pepe not cut out for the Premier League

 The Gunners legend also had his say on Mesut Ozil's exit from the club

Arsenal legend Robert Pires has claimed Nicolas Pepe is not cut out for the rigours of the Premier League.

Pepe arrived at Arsenal from Lille in 2019, and the £72 million ($99m / €81m) transfer fee placed huge expectation on his shoulders.

The 25-year-old has shown flashes of brilliance, but not enough to justify the fee and Pires feels it is a mindset problem that Pepe will struggle to change.
