“Pepe is Walcott from Uber Eats” – Some Chelsea fans happy to have saved £72 million

Nicolas Pepe joined Arsenal from Lille in a club record deal worth £72 million this summer, as reported by The Guardian.

The 24-year old hasn’t exactly had the best starts to life in English football and is continuing to struggle in a physical league that is different to most.

He had another poor performance again last night as his side drew 1-1 away to Manchester United.

Pepe was a sought after talent and one of the clubs reportedly showing an interest before he joined Arsenal was Chelsea, as reported by many at the time including The Metro.

At the time there were many Chelsea supporters demanding that their club do all they can to bring the winger to Stamford Bridge, but right now, they’re feeling like they’ve dodged a bullet and saved themselves a chunk of money.

It’s safe to say that some Blues fans have started to admit a massive u-turn on their opinions on the Arsenal player.
