Hey, ArsenalEditor here. Will be posting my videos here from now on. Both Mustafi and Perez have been Arsenal’s targets the past few weeks, and now we have had confirmation that the signing is complete. However, what do we know about each player at this moment in time?
Lucas Perez is a 27 year old attacker that currently plays for Deportivo La Coruna. His nationality is Spanish and the estimated fee is in the region of £17 million. Many fans have criticised Wenger for this decision as it is not the world class signing fans were looking for, however, he might prove to be a diamond in the rough.
Perez will challenge other potential first team strikers for their position such as Giroud and Walcott. Perez is a player who has strengths in long shots and key passes. Last season, Perez scored 17 goals in 36 appearances, had 8 assists, created 72 chances and had 38 successful take-ons.
Lucas will strengthen our attack majorly, as he scored a decent amount of goals for a club that is considered small while he will be receiving plenty of service from Arsenal’s attacking midfielders especially Mesut Ozil who likes a good ball in behind.
