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?
Mustafi is a senior defender that currently plays for Valencia. The estimated fee for him is around £35 million. If Mustafi and Koscielny were to be partnered with each other, they could be the Premier Leagues best defensive partnership, if not the worlds one day. Mustafi has appeared for Valencia 78 times and scored 6 goals in all competitions.
The German would fit seamlessly into the team quite as he is a well known friend of attacking midfielder Mesut Özil and Per Mertesacker, the former was a major influence on Mustafi’s decision to join Arsenal. There is also a gap in the defensive part of the squad for a senior defender, which is what Mustafi would instantly fill.
His signing will almost certainly reduce the amount of goals conceded this season and make our currently makeshift central partnership a heck of a lot stronger.
