The BBC’s David Ornstein a.k.a. The Ornacle has once again spoken, claiming that Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez are set to have their medicals with Arsenal very soon.
The reliable source has revealed that Arsenal have agreed a £35m deal for Valencia centre-back, Mustafi, and the German is flying to London for his medical.
Perez, on the other hand, is due to have his medical today (Friday).
As Arsene Wenger alluded to in his pre-Watford press conference, this means that it’s highly unlikely that either play will be announced today, since Arsenal are hardly the swiftest at getting this kind of thing sorted. However, it does mean that there’s hope on the horizon and that next week we could potentially be seeing two shiny new Gunners in the squad.
