Arsenal have Nicolas Pepe now. However it will be hard to forget the misery they suffered last year for being ineffective from the flanks. Should Pepe get injured or suspended, Arsenal will probably suffer the same fate as they did last campaign. Henrikh Mkhitariyan and Mesut Ozil were tried last summer to disappointing results and Unai Emery will hope to have an effective winger in the squad as a backup.
Arsenal could find their answer in Steven Bergwijn. The 21-year-old Dutchman has seen a very steady growth with PSV in Eredivisie. The Dutch side have priced him at £30m. However, with the way he is improving, the youngster could end being worth a lot more in just a few more years. Like Pepe, Bergwijn can play on both sides of the wing and is very creative on the offensive. If Arsenal pay the price now, in a few years it could prove to be a bargain.
