Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has announced additions of defender Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia and striker Lucas Perez from Deportivo.
The duo have both undergone medicals with the Gunners although there is still some paperwork to be completed before the transfers can officially be announced.
Speaking after Saturday’s 3-1 win at Watford, Wenger said: “I think they should go through, both of them. They had medicals.
“We have to finish the paperwork and I don’t know exactly when we will announce it but look, I think it could be announced at the beginning of the week.” Wenger told the club’s official website.
27-year old Perez who will move to the Emirates from Deportivo La Coruna for a reported fee of £17.1m, will link up with the Gunners’ squad as soon as the deal is finalised.
Germany centre-back Mustafi, 24, will join Arsenal from Valencia on a five-year deal, according to Sky in Germany, with a fee which could rise to £35m understood to have been agreed this week.
However, Mustafi will not link up with Arsenal until after the international break with Germany scheduled to play Finland and Norway on August 31 and September 4 respectively.
