Arsenal finally complete the signing of Germany international defender Shkodran Mustafi

ARSENAL have finally announced the signing of central defender Shkodran Mustafi.

The World Cup winning German is Arsene Wenger's second signing in a day with the addition of former Deportivo striker Lucas Perez.

The former Valencia defender joins the club in a £35million deal after putting pen-to-paper on a five-year contract.

A move for the 24-year-old has been in the pipeline for weeks but Wenger will be delighted to get the deal done and bolster his depleted back four.

Speaking to Arsenal's official website, the manager said: "He is at the right age. He has good experience. He is a very focused player who can play with the ball as well.
