Arsenal officially announce the capture of two players; Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi

Arsenal have completed the signing of forward Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna.

Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed on Saturday that the 27-year-old, along with Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi, had agreed terms, with the official confirmation on Tuesday.

While speaking to Arsenal's official website, Wenger's comments on Perez was "He's not only a goalscorer, he's 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."

Perez plied his trade for several clubs across Europe, including Rayo Vallecano, Karpaty Lviv and PAOK, before joining Deportivo, initially on loan, in 2014.

The 27-year-old, renowned for his pace and work rate, scored 17 goals in 36 league appearances for the club last season, while also providing 10 assists.

On the other hand, Arsenal also made an official announcement of the capture of Germany International centre back; Shkodran Mustafi.

The 24-year-old's transfer was confirmed after manager Arsene Wenger announced that the completion of paperwork was the final hurdle to clear following Saturday's 3-1 win over Watford.

"He is at the right age. He has good experience," the Frenchamn told the club's official website. "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."

It is a return to the Premier League for former Everton player Mustafi, who moved to Sampdoria before joining Valencia and making 64 La Liga appearances there.
