Mustafi: Perez has everything


Lucas Perez has 'everything a striker needs' and is 'uncomfortable to play against' according to his new Arsenal team-mate Shkodran Mustafi.

Perez scored twice for Deportivo la Coruna against the Mustafi’s Valencia last season but they will have the opportunity to play alongside each other this season after both players finalised their moves to Arsenal before deadline day.

Mustafi has been impressed with Perez, who netted 17 times in La Liga last season, and believes he will be a big asset to Arsenal.

“He is uncomfortable to play against. He’s a good striker - he has everything a striker needs,” Mustafi told Arsenal Player.

“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.”
