Arsenal set for double La Liga swoop

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have typically had it particularly hard at this time of the summer over the last few years. 

With Arsene Wenger usually remaining almost entirely dormant for swathes of the close season, the Gunners propping up the against bar have been looking upon their pint glasses as half-empty.

However, reports from BBC Sport have the Emirates faithful ordering champagne on ice this evening.

According to Auntie Beeb, the North London giant have agreed a stunning double deal for Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez and Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Both defensive frailty and a lack of cutting edge have proved major factors for the club in their ailing attempts to land an elusive fourth Premier League title under the stewardship of Le Prof. 

Perez, who notched 17 goals in La Liga last term, is understood to have been the subject of £17.1m offer, one that reportedly activates his release clause.

Olivier Giroud is the only recognised natural centre-forward currently available for selection, so the 27-year-old’s potential arrival has come much to the delight of the Gunners in Tavern.

Mustafi, meanwhile, is believed to finally be on his way to England after intense speculation.

The World Cup-winning central defender is said to be on the verge of penning a five-year deal with Arsenal after they reportedly agreed a £35m fee with Los Che.

Amid an injury crisis in North London, summer signing Rob Holding has been thrown in at the deep end after moving from Bolton Wanderers.

Mustafi is no stranger to life in England, having spent some time as a youngster at Everton before moving to Spain and emerging as one of the most formidable defenders in La Liga.

Arsenal fans, just how delighted are you about this?! Let us know below…
