Serious criticisms have been heaped on the learship of Arsenal football club over the signing of Pepe.
Arsenal have been told they made an error in signing Nicolas Pepe from Lyon for a club-record of £75million in the summer.
Charlton Athletic manager, Lee Bowyer, said that instead, Arsenal boss, Unai Emery should have battled Manchester United for the signing of Harry Maguire. Speaking on Sky Sports’ The Debate programme, he said, “Defensively Arsenal are frail, they concede too many goals.
“Their centre-halves have been a problem for years. It’s not just been this season, it’s been for a while now.
“But they would rather spend £75million on a winger than a centre-back.
“Harry Maguire would have been perfect for them, why didn’t they get him?”
