Assessing and analysing Aribim Pepple - The Luton Town target thriving in Canada
Luton Town are reportedly in advanced talks to sign exciting forward Aribim Pepple, following a prolific start to the Canadian Premier League.
Born in Kettering, the 19-year-old currently plays his football over the Atlantic with Cavalry FC, netting six goals in his opening seven games.
A report from Football Insider has claimed that the Hatters have 'hijacked' Forest Green Rovers' move for the teenage forward, with Pepple catching the eye across Europe.
Here, his 2022 season data, from Wyscout, is crunched down to better understand the type of player that could arrive at Kenilworth Road soon...
First and foremost, a lot of dark green in these attacking measures is an already exciting sign, with Pepple particularly returning excellent numbers in the number of offensive duels per 90 he engaged in and the shots he had per 90 minutes.
He also has shows up strong with his goal conversion rate, whilst his dribbling numbers also make for good reading.
A player who ticks a lot of boxes in an attacking capacity, he appears to be an all-action kind of forward, providing some excellent number for a teenage striker.
With the majority of these measures located around the average mark, his extremely high return for passing accuracy shows he is a player who takes care when in possession and can be trusted on the ball.
He also shows up relatively high when it comes to smart passes per 90, with this suggesting that he is someone who can create and looks to open up defences accordingly.
Engaging in a large number of defensive duels, and ranking within the top 25% amongst Canadian Premier League strikers, he is within the top 10% when regarding the defensive duels that he has won. Not only does this display that he is someone that likes to get stuck in and will contribute in his own half, it also shows that he can dominate his opponent.
Interestingly, he returns a very low figure for his pass-adjusted interceptions, something that is likely to come on leaps in bounds as he gains more experience.
