Shkodran Mustafi Warns Premier League Rivals About Lucas Perez

Arsenal new signing Shkodran Mustafi has warned Premier League clubs about the quality of fellow summer arrival Lucas Perez.

The duo completed a move to the Emirates in the final days of the transfer window and Mustafi who faced Perez in the La Liga last term has revealed the Spaniard is difficult to play against.

The signing of Perez took most Arsenal fans by surprise as we were hoping for a more popular name but Mustafi has now revealed that the striker has everything needed to succeed at the Emirates.

‘He is uncomfortable to play against,’ Mustafi said.

‘He’s a good striker – he has everything a striker needs.

‘He’s someone you can play well with. He doesn’t just run around and wait for someone to give him a pass to score a goal.

‘He works a lot for the team as well and he creates chances.

‘He’s in the right place at the right time, as he showed last year in La Liga.

‘I played there for two years and I know it’s not that easy to score many goals in La Liga, because you have great defenders there as well.

‘I think he’s going to help the team a lot.’

The duo cost the club a combined fee of £52m and are both in line to make their debut for the club on Saturday.
