It looks more and more as if Lucas Perez is on his way to Arsenal with reports this evening confirming that Arsenal have agreed a deal with Deportivo la Coruña.
Earlier in the day there were some suggestions that the Spanish side had rejected a bid based on the Gunners desire to pay the transfer fee in two parts. We have no idea how much truth there was to that, but as ever with this club it’s easy to make a story that seems to fit … and to be fair we don’t help ourselves at times.
Nevertheless, local sources say that Arsenal will pay the €20m clause in full, and it seems the 27 year old will be heading for London to tie up the formalities of the deal.
Radio Cadena Ser confirms the information on Lucas. Depor accept the last €20 million offer. The player will sign a 4-year deal with Arsenal

Unless everything is done and dusted by noon tomorrow the player will not be eligible to play against Watford, something that’s a slim possibility anyway. Realistically he won’t be available until after the Interlull when we face Southampton at home.
1 poo folks. We are 1 poo.
