Mustafi gives Arsenal fans the lowdown on Lucas Perez

Shkodran Mustafi has been talking about fellow Arsenal signing Lucas Perez.

The striker has the upper hand over the defender, having scored two goals for Deportivo La Coruna in games against Valencia when Mustafa was playing.

“He is uncomfortable to play against," 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."
