After a difficult summer, Arsenal look to be on the verge of sealing two big deals from La Liga.

The Gunners are reportedly close to finalising a pair of deals tonight, with a week to go to the Transfer Deadline Day.

Valencia have agreed to sell centre-back Shkodran Mustafi for around €40 million.

His release clause had been about the €50 million mark but it appears that Los Che are willing to part with the player for a smaller fee.

Deportivo striker Lucas Perez is also poised to move to London for €20 million as Arsenal moved ahead of Everton to seal a deal.

The forward scored 17 La Liga goals last season.
