Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe will look at his options after becoming increasingly frustrated at his lack of game time at the Emirates.

Pepe scored in the 2-1 defeat by France on Friday and the Ivory Coast winger has said: “I am focused on how well we do until the end of the season and the club’s target, which is getting into the Champions League. Then we will see what happens.

“When a team is winning it is hard for a coach to make changes. Mikel Arteta has explained that to me and the coach knows what I think and how hard I’m working. It has been a tough season for me. Of course, it is frustrating not to play but I have to respect the coach’s decision.

“I have improved since coming to London and English football is totally different from French football, particularly the intensity in the matches and I had to adapt physically and make that transition which I feel I have done.”

The 26-year-old’s contract with the Gunners is set to expire at the end of next season.
