The two new signings faced each other in La Liga last season, with Lucas scoring twice for Deportivo la Coruna against the German centre back’s Valencia.
“He is uncomfortable to play against,” Mustafi told Arsenal Player. “He’s a good striker - he has everything a striker needs.
“He’s someone you can play well with. He doesn’t just run around and wait for someone to give him a pass to score a goal. He works a lot for the team as well and he creates chances.
“He’s in the right place at the right time, as he showed last year in La Liga. I played there for two years and I know it’s not that easy to score many goals in La Liga, because you have great defenders there as well.
“I think he’s going to help the team a lot.”
