Deportivo confident of Lucas Perez return 0

Posted on July 06, 2017 by Milos Markovic

The arrival of French international striker Alexandre Lacazette has been interpreted as a clear message for out-of-favour Arsenal striker Lucas Perez, who is now set to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The 28-year-old Spanish striker Perez made just two Premier League starts after joining Gunners last summer in his £17 million transfer from La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna.

Having failed to impress and win his place in Arsene Wenger’s starting line-up Lucas Perez is keen to leave Arsenal in order to play regularly and boost his chances of making it into Spain’s World Cup squad next season.

Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is expected to be on his way out this summer, with two clubs from the Spanish La Liga believed to be keen in his signature. The 28-year-old hasn’t even been at the Emirates Stadium for a year but is seeking a move as a result of a lack of playing time in his maiden campaign.

According to the Mirror, former side Deportivo La Coruna and Sevilla are both interested in Perez who asked for an exit after his £17m move didn’t go to plan. He was brought to the club late last summer and ended up scoring an impressive seven goals in 400 minutes of football in all competitions.

Striker Lucas Perez is unhappy with his current status at Arsenal and is reported to be seeking a way out of the club at the end of the season.

Serious lack of playing time has left Spaniard disgruntled and disillusioned with his future at Arsenal which ultimately led to a revelation that he would consider moving back to Deportivo La Coruna in the summer.

The 28-year-old striker managed only three starts for the Gunners in the Premier League and Champions League this season and he feels such a limited involvement has not helped him progress as a footballer.

Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle, agent of Lucas Perez, claims the Arsenal man hasn’t spoken to any club about a summer exit and is instead focused on seeing out the season with the Gunners. Perez, signed from Deportivo La Coruna last summer, has been linked with a return to the Estadio Riazor after a disappointing debut campaign at the Emirates Stadium, but Lovelle has refuted such claims.

Arsenal’s Spanish striker Lucas Perez is set for a summer return to former club Deportivo La Coruna, according to the Daily Star.

Lucas only arrived at Arsenal last summer from Deportivo for a reported fee of around £17million. The Gunners snatched the striker out of the grasp of Premier League rivals Everton.

However, Lucas has failed to get much of a chance in north London and it seems he could make a loan move back to his former club.

When Lucas Perez first signed for Arsenal from Deportivo La Coruna for a reported fee of £17million a lot of Gunners fans will have been googling the striker (sounds painful). The reason being he had endured something of a nomadic career.

The versatile forward had played in Spain, Greece and the Ukraine. The then 27-year-old was not exactly the high-quality striker that the Gunners fans craved.

He’s done okay in his cameos so far

Arsenal attacker Lucas Perez has been granted permission to return to Spain while he steps up his rehabilitation. The former Deportivo La Coruna striker has been ruled out until the New Year with an ankle injury, but has been allowed to recover in his native country.

The 28-year-old has endured a difficult debut season at the Emirates Stadium, having amassed just 277 minutes of football in all competitions for Arsenal prior to his injury, and now isn’t likely to feature until January. Perez was given the No.9 shirt upon his summer arrival and was expected to get game time early in with Olivier Giroud injured.

Lucas could play alongside Giroud not as his replacement 1

Arsenal new-boy Lucas Perez was signed to bolster the attack this season as the Gunners looked to challenge for the Premier League title. However, the former Deportivo La Coruna striker wasn’t brought in to replace first-choice Olivier Giroud, or provide a plan B option from the bench, Lucas could well start in attack alongside Giroud and Alexis Sanchez.

The £17M-man can operate across the front three, but is capable of playing as a right-sided forward, cutting inside in his favoured left foot. Lucas has a good eye for goal, but his pace could be useful in behind Giroud to feed off his knock-downs and flick-ons. He would also complement Alexis Sanchez who provides a similar threat on the left flank, giving Arsenal a fearsome attack with plenty of goals.

Arsenal are set to sign Deportivo La Coruna striker Lucas Perez this summer after meeting his £17M release clause. The Spanish centre-forward, coming off his most prolific campaign, will provide competition for first-choice Olivier Giroud in attack, while also being capable to operate on either flank. The 27-year-old might not be directly fighting with Giroud for a place in the side due to the amount of games he’s operated in as a wide forward, but who is Lucas?
