"For the club, it's an honour to see one of our players join one of the best teams in Europe and pull on the mythical 'Gunners' shirt. He's a person with values who has no equal. He'll leave the Pierre Mauroy stadium but will always be welcomed back. They'll remember an efficient, spectacular player who generated a lot of emotions."

That statement hailed the 24-year-old Pepe who has scored 37 goals in 80 appearances for Lille. He's been handed the number '19' shirt at Arsenal.
