Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, has finally succumb to the plea of fans worldwide as Arsenal sign two new players.
Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez and Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi have joined the club.
Spaniard Perez, 27, scored 17 goals in 37 games last season. He was close to joining Everton before the Gunners met his £17.1m release clause.
Wenger praised his new attacker saying ”he’s not only a goalscorer, he is a guy who combines well with partners, who can give a final ball and makes good runs. He’s got a good eye for goal and had an outstanding season last year.”
Germany international Mustafi signed on in a fee of over £35m.
The 24-year-old defender has been with Valencia for two seasons, making 64 league appearances. He began his senior career by coming through the academy at Everton before spending two years with Sampdoria in Serie A.
On Mustafi, Wenger said ”he is at the right age. He has good experience. He is a very focused player who can play with the ball as well. We have taken a great player but have prepared well for the future.”
Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi, who is currently on international duty, are Arsenal’s fifth and sixth signings in this transfer window. Granit Xhaka, and the young trio of Rob Holding, Takuma Asano and Kelechi Nwakali also joined during this off season.
The English Premier League giants have taken their total summer spending to well over £90 million.
Arsenal fans were beginning to grow frustrated with the long serving manager and have called for him to be sacked in recent months.
Arsenal had been priced out of landing several other targets with a few others opting not to join the club.
Meanwhile, a couple of Arsenal players might be on their way out of the club in search of regular football. Jack Wilshere, Calum Chambers, Serge Gnabry, and Chuba Akpom are said to be looking for loan deals elsewhere.
