The Wales international has starred for the north-west club this season, being the second-most fouled player during a brilliant opening few months at the start of his Premier League career (via WhoScored).

Meanwhile, Pepe has struggled at the Emirates Stadium with his own manager, Unai Emery, claiming the Ivorian could struggle for the whole 2019/2020 campaign (via Sky Sports).

Fans took to Twitter to laud their young Welsh winger, with one supporter evening claiming that he is better than Atletico Madrid’s £113m signing, Joao Felix.
