Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has always claimed that he wouldn’t spend money on players for the sake of it, insisting that the players will have to be the “right” ones that can add value to the team.
Although, the transfer sum is quite meager, Arsenal new boy Lucas Perez may just be the bargain for Arsenal this season.
After reports emerged that Lucas Peres has signed for Arsenal, a lot of fans raised eye brows if the 27-year-old was the player we need at Arsenal. However, statisics from OPTA and Squawka show that Arsenal’s new signing Lucas Perez is better than both Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud.
Perez leads the way over the French duo when it comes to assists, chances created, pass completion, and shot accuracy. It seems that the Spaniard is very adept at build-up play, something which the team sometimes lacks with Giroud up top.
