The Arsenal boss has come under fire for not addressing the striker or centre-back positions in the transfer window so far but he is set to silence the critics with a double swoop.

When asked about the duo, Wenger said: ‘ We are working on the deals.

‘Will we sign anyone before the window closes? I’m 99 per cent confident.’

The news that Arsenal are close to the duo will come as a great relief to many Arsenal fans.

German international and Valencia centre-back Mustafi, 24, will be brought in to solve Wenger’s defensive nightmare, where he has lost both Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertesacker to injury.

The defender spent some time in his youth with Everton but failed to make a first-team appearance for the club.

Deportivo star Perez, 27, will provide competition for Olivier Giroud up front.

It’s believed both stars are flying into England today, with BBC journalist David Ornstein reporting the duo will undergo their medicals this afternoon.
