Lucas Perez’s Arsenal adventure could be over inside a year if reports in Spain are to be believed.
As has been well documented, the Spanish striker was less than impressed by his lack of game time in his debut season at the Emirates and is said to be on the lookout for a club in his homeland.
The 28-year-old, who signed last August, made just 18 appearances in all competitions last season despite scoring seven goals and contributing six assists.
While a return to former club Deportivo La Coruna is the player’s preference (La Voz de Galicia claim the club’s board is doing its best to raise the necessary funds) Sport claim both Sevilla and Espanyol are also keeping tabs on his situation.
On the verge of signing Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, it’s believed the Gunners are willing to let Lucas leave the club this summer for around €15 million, even though the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud are in doubt.
In the meantime, Lucas is expected back at London Colney for pre-season training in the coming days and could partake in the tour of Australia and China.
