Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal have signed Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi.

Deportivo striker Lucas Perez will join the Gunners in a £17million deal, while Valencia defender Mustafi will reportedly cost a fee in the region of £35million.

Speaking after Arsenal’s 3-1 victory at Watford, Wenger said: “We have bought two players, Mustafi and Perez.

“They will integrate into the team now and we will help them join squad. We had to work very hard to get signings done. We have not got any plans for anyone else now.”

The victory at Vicarage Road marks Arsenal’s first three points of the season, and Wenger suggests the team will only get better as the likes of Mesut Ozil work there way back to full fitness.

“I believe we shot ourselves in the foot in first game and were under huge pressure,” he said.

“We had two difficult away games but today I believe we had a good solid performance.

“We had a good cushion at half time. At the moment we are not completely there physically and could see that in second half.

“Ozil is not physically there completely but what we want from Ozil is assists and goals and I hope he can get that this season, 10 or 15 goals plus the chances he creates.”
