Arsenal Fans React To Belated, Impending Signings Of Striker And Defender


It’s taken Arsenal quite a while to get active in the transfer market once again after the earlier purchases of Granit Xhaka, Rob Holding and Takuma Asano.

Unsuccessful forays for the likes of Jamie Vardy, Alexandre Lacazette and Mauro Icardi have left the Arsenal faithful in fits of rage. That anger towards manager Arsene Wenger was compounded by the Gunner’s poor start to the season, with just one point after two Premier League games.

The pressure has prompted some late transfer activity, and according to the stupendously placed David Ornstein of the BBC, Arsenal have agreed a deal with Deportivo La Coruna for striker Lucas Perez to the tune of £17m.

The reaction to both likely acquirements was comprised largely of positivity, especially regarding Valencia’s Shkodran Mustafi.

Though Ornstein wasn’t quite as conclusive regarding long-term defensive target Shkodran Mustafi, claiming that Arsenal are close to agreeing a £35m deal, Jeremy Wilson of the Telegraph has just confirmed that the offer has been accepted.


Arsenal are next in action on Saturday, as they take on Watford away at Vicarage Road.
