Arsenal in talks for forward Perez

Arsenal now look set to bring in Mustafi from Valencia for around £35million, but could arguably have had a better player in Toprak for just £5m more. "Especially when you deal with leagues that start late".

Perez has been watched repeatedly by the north London club, but in July they knocked back the chance to sign him.

Arsenal agreed a £35million deal with Valencia on Thursday for Mustafi, who flew to London for his medical on Friday.

The 28-year-old has been identified as the striker to help Olivier Giroud up front this season following a summer of failing to land targets including Jamie Vardy and Gonzalo Higuain.

Daily Mail have reported that Arsenal have suffered a setback in their pursuit of Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez after the Liga BBVA club deemed the structure of their £16.9m bid for the Spaniard as "unacceptable".

Past winners include, Lionel Messi (2011, 2015), Andres Iniesta (2012), Frank Ribery (2013), and Cristiano Ronaldo (2014). Ronaldo went on to clinch a first major global title with Portugal at Euro 2016.

"So, as things stand, neither Mustafi nor Alcacer will be leaving Valencia".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits this has been a hard transfer window for the Gunners, although their spending could soon reach 100 million pounds.

Arsene Wenger says he's "99 per cent confident" Arsenal will buy before the end of the transfer window, with deals close for Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez.

"After Alex [Ferguson] retired and we played them over there he sent a message to me to come up and have a drink with him".

"I think today maybe I'm a bit too optimistic, but I hope what we have done what we wanted before [deadline day]", he said.

Delegations from the National Conference and the Congress held separate meetings with the Home Minister. Singh also discussed how to bring back normalcy in the border state as early as possible, sources said.

The Frenchman later admitted that he was expecting a straightforward transfer window this summer and predicted a busy few days before the market closes. But you will see how many transfers will happen in the next three or four days. "I believe that it's not right".

When questioned at a press conference held before tomorrow's trip to Watford if the addition of Mustafi would affect Chambers' future, the manager was quoted as saying by Arsenal's official website: "Future? No".

Asked if signing a defender would affect Chambers' future, Wenger said: "Future? No". The fact that he could go out somewhere and play? He was also in the squad for Euro 2016. Coleman was annoyed as Ramsey suffered a hamstring injury and is out of the Wales squad.

But Wenger said he would not be influenced by the fans' demands.

Wenger claimed Arsenal's Champions League draw will be tough after they were paired with Paris Saint Germain, Basel and Ludogorets.

Even if he's just a bench player, that feels like very good value for a guy with starting experience. "Getting better every day". He would go on to start the final nine regular season games that year along with two of New England's three playoff games.
