Central striking berths have hardly been convincing at the Emirates in recent seasons, with the likes of Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud failing to wholly convince.
Thanks to WhoScored, it is clear that the 27-year-old enjoyed somewhat of a breakthrough season last time out, notching his highest ever total.
In fact, he managed to score 10 more goals for Branquiazuis last term than he had done in his previous two campaigns, emerging as one of the hottest forwards in La Liga.
He has started the new campaign with a goal in the season opener at home to Eibar.
The Mirror cite a £17m fee, with Wenger splashing out the cash for only the second time this summer following the huge arrival of Granit Xhaka earlier this summer.
