Arsenal Legend Ian Wright believes Lucas Perez will be a quality addition to the squad.
The 28-year-old striker signed for Arsenal in the final days of the transfer window and Wright believes he would be a good signing for the club.
Perez had a good season at Deportivo La Coruna last year, scoring 17 league goals and he will now try to replicate or even surpass that goal tally for Arsenal this year.
And Wright has backed Perez to score up to 20 league goals this season.
“Hopefully, he can score goals,” Wright told The Sun Goals podcast, as quoted by the Daily Star.
“Look at Ighalo. Ighalo was the same. Hardly scored any goals where he came from. If he comes in and for this season he kicks on and scores 15-20 goals that will get him going. He will get chances in the Arsenal side.
“Ighalo did it in the Watford team with all due respect. If he kicks on in the Arsenal team with the chances that they make, he could easily score 20 goals – continuously.”
Arsenal fans will be hoping Perez proves Wright correct at the end of the season. The club have been looking of a striker who can score 20 goals or more per season and hopefully, Perez is that man.
