He may not be the stellar signing that the Arsenal fans have been crying out for but Lucas Perez may turn out to be one of Arsene Wenger’s more astute signings. A quick and direct striker Perez has the qualities that are missing in Giroud and while the Frenchman has been a good player for the club, there are times when Arsenal require some other option up front.
5) He shares a record with Bebeto !
Bebeto was a Brazilian goal scoring hero who scored in seven consecutive games for Deportivo.
After 10 years of having that record, Lucas Perez also added his name to that list when he scored in seven consecutive matches last season.
Perez had an incredible start to last season when he scored 12 times at the start which put him second to only Luis Suarez on the goal scoring chart.
