Ian Wright predicts how many goals Lucas Perez will score for Arsenal this season

Ian Wright believes new Arsenal signing Lucas Perez is capable of scoring 15-20 goal this season.

The Spanish striker completed a £17m move to the north London club from La Liga outfit Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday afternoon.

Perez passed a medical at the weekend before he put on the Arsenal shirt for the first time on Tuesday evening.

The 27-year-old scored 17 times in 37 Premier League appearances for the Spanish side last season.

Former Arsenal striker Wright is confident Perez can have an instant impact in the Premier League despite his modest goal-scoring record.

“I’m delighted they’ve come. Hopefully he can score goals,” Wright told The Sun Goals app.

“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 finished in second place in the Premier League last term as France international Olivier Giroud finished as their top goal-scorer with a return of 16 goals.

The Gunners have signed five players in the summer transfer window after Arsene Wenger started his spending spree with the £33m signing of Granit Xhaka.
