Both players have actually considering that had a hard time to live up to those cost, however, with Perez making simply 21 appearances for the club prior to leaving 2 years after his arrival.
Mustafi is still at the club, on the other hand, however has regularly been criticised for his error-prone efficiencies during his 133 Arsenal getaways.
The Athletic reports that neither player was on Cagigao’s list of advised finalizings when Arsenal remained in the market for a new centre-back and striker, however that the Gunners rather opted for analytical information offered by Stat DNA.
