Arsenal have been linked to a lot of players this summer, with the injury crisis, may more were linked with the Premier League giant.
The world is eagerly awaiting the official confirmation of two new players that finally joined the club after a lengthy time in the transfer market for the players.
After the 3-1 win over Watford, a happy Arsene Wenger told Sky Sports that the two additions in Valencia’s Shkodran Mustafi and Deportivo’s Lucas Perez would be integrated to the team so they could help.
“They will integrate into the team now and we will help them join the squad. We had to work very hard to get signings done. We have not got any plans for anyone else now,” Wenger revealed. His statements seemed to have annulled reports linking the club to a last minute swoop for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette. After the news of the two deals filtered, there was another from TransferMarketWeb claiming the Gunners were ready to splash more cash to land the player from the French Ligue 1, following his brilliant start this term. The report claimed Lyon wanted as much as £60 million for the 25-year old, and Arsenal were willing to pay as the deadline was close.
The agent of Marcelo Brozovic confirmed reports that Arsenal want to get the player, fuelling tales that Arsenal wanted to get super subs. The comment from Wenger means the deals might not eventually happen, at least for the next few months with the deadline being Wednesday.
On the two deals so far, Wenger said: “I think they should go through, both of them.” Perez – who is a late bloomer – would have to get to action quick as the Champions League starts immediately after the international break.
