According to Transfermarkt, Pepe is the most expensive African player of all time. The Ivory Coast international moved to Arsenal from Lille in 2019 for a club-record €80 million fee. He hasn’t always lived up to expectations in London, but he showed promise at the end of last season.

Former Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Gabon) and Thomas Partey (Ghana) made the top ten after joining the London club for €63.8 million and €50 million, respectively, from Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid.
