Real Madrid are going through an underwhelming season which is set to be defined according to reigning Spanish and European champions’ success in the Champions League.

With a gapping 17-point deficit keeping Real Madrid locked in third place behind La Liga runaway leaders Barcelona, Florentino Perez is slowly forging a plan to rebuild the Los Blancos squad and present Zinedine Zidane – if the Frenchman manages to keep his job that is – with some fresh blood in key areas.

One of the names that have been under a huge barrage of criticism this season (apart from Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo) is Karim Benzema.

La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna have made an unusual proposal to Arsenal man Lucas Perez in effort to re-sign the forward and lure him back to his hometown club.

The 28-year-old Spanish striker endured a torrid time in London over the past season. Having joined Arsenal in August 2016 for a transfer fee believed to be in excess of €20 million, Lucas Perez struggled to hold down a starting place at the Gunners.

The Spaniard found his opportunities limited having started only two Premier League matches throughout the season and is believed to be looking for a way out of Arsenal in order to kick-start his career.

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 will once again have to shop for a central midfielder this summer as this area has been a major concern for Arsenal this season.

With peripheral Francis Coquelin, Granit Xhaka as a liability, long-forgotten Mohamed Elneny and Santi Cazorla sidelined with injuries since October, Arsene Wenger has been disturbingly out of option in central midfield.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped out of his comfort zone to fill in a central role in a number of times this season which only outlined the need for fresh blood in the centre of the pitch.

Last week Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe was being touted as the next Arsenal boss, but this week Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone is again being linked with the top job at Arsenal.

The Argentinian has been linked with Arsenal for a while now as a long-term replacement for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, whose contract expires next summer.
