Would any of Arsenal’s strikers get into a top-six team? 0

Posted on June 20, 2017 by David Nugent

I was pondering the other day whether any of Arsenal’s strikers would get into any of their top-six rivals teams. When I say strikers, for the sake of argument take Chilean Alexis Sanchez out of the mix, as he does not always get used as a central striker.

That leaves us with Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez. The only one out of that trio who has not been linked with a summer move is Welbeck.

Rivals have better strikers

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.

North London club Arsenal have set their sights on Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado.

The Gunners are thought to have already submitted an offer for former Chelsea player and Colombia international, who made 30 Serie A appearances for the Italian champions last season.

According to reports from The Sun, Juventus have rejected Arsenal’s £17 million approach for the 29-year-old, who is also a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

The Champions League finalists Juventus are believed to be holding out for £30 million for their player as Arsenal are told to cough up if they want to land the Colombia international.

Less than a year into his disappointing spell with the Gunners, Spanish striker Lucas Perez looks set to leave north London.

The 28-year-olf former Deportivo La Coruna star failed to make an impression at Arsenal after registering only 11 Premier League appearances and adding just one goal to his name.

Disappointed by the lack of playing time, Perez is determined to leave the Emirates stadium in search of first-team football and it looks like Arsenal will not be standing in his way.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal’s Spanish striker Lucas Perez has told the north London club he wants to leave this summer. The 28-year-old only moved to Arsenal last summer for a fee of £17million from Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna.

Perez’s agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle told the Press Association Sport: “The idea is to be able to play for another club,”

“We want to leave and Arsenal already knows. Do you know anyone who is happy but has no opportunities?”

The well-travelled striker has started just two Premier League games and nine games in all competitions. He was mostly used as a substitute making 12 appearances for the Gunners last season.

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.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has provided important team news update while speaking at a press conference ahead of the Premier League highly-anticipated showdown with Manchester United.

Gunners boss confirmed that Swiss international midfield Granit Xhaka has been ruled out of the clash after failing to recover from an ankle blow received in the north London derby defeat last week.

Xhaka was forced off in the second half of the 2-0 defeat by Tottenham, but the 64 minutes he got to spend on the pitch against Spurs were widely disappointing. Arsenal midfielder was one of many players who played well below par in last Sunday’s matchup.

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 star set for a return to former club 0

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.

Arsenal injury update ahead of Man City clash 0

Posted on April 02, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal have just three absentees ahead of this afternoon’s clash with Manchester City, with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both expected to be fit to start. Lucas Pérez is out with a thigh injury, goalkeeper Petr Čech is suffering from a calf strain and Santi Cazorla has his ongoing battle with an achilles injury.

It means the Gunners don’t have any issues with squad selection as only Petr Cech needs replacing from the first-team but has a fine deputy in David Ospina – who has been used in the Champions League this season – between the sticks. Despite Perez’ absence, Arsenal are blessed with attacking options – Olivier Giroud and Alex Sanchez as options up front, while Theo Walcott, Alex Iwobi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can play on either flank.
