Nwankwo Kanu is convinced various Premier League sides are already scared of the Arsenal's record signing Nicolas Pepe.

The 24-year-old sealed a permanent move from Ligue 1 club Lille to the north London side during the summer transfer window and has produced fine displays in his two league appearances against Liverpool and Tottenham before the international break, but he still has room for improvement.

However, Arsenal legend Kanu reckons Pepe will be a real hit at the Emirates as he brings something different to Unai Emery's Gunners.

"If you watch him you can see he is a really good footballer and his feet are very quick. He is going to score goals and he is going to play well," the former Nigeria international told Goal.

"He will get much better and he will score goals for us. He brings us something different to the other two strikers.

"I believe that teams are already afraid of him after a few games. They are scared of what he can do and what he can offer. He’s a very good addition."
