Arsenal are looking to offload a number of their players and one of those is supposedly Spanish striker Lucas Perez. The 28-year-old only joined the Gunners from Deportivo La Coruna last summer for a fee of around £17million.

However, he struggled for game time with the club from north London and is now looking to move on in search of regular game time elsewhere.  According to TalkSport, a number of clubs are trailing the forward this summer.

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.

Leicester City booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after seeing past perennial Europa League winners Sevilla, progressing further in their maiden European campaign than Arsenal have in seven years. The Foxes are 25/1 to win the Champions League this season, and will now face either Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, AS Monaco/Manchester City, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid/Bayer Leverkusen, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.

For Arsenal, it’s seven straight years of last-16 disappointment, their latest of which saw them lose 10-2 on aggregate to a Bayern Munich not considered to be at their best this season. The German Bundesliga giants weren’t good enough to win their group prior to the knockouts but made light work of a fragile Arsenal side enduring one of their most disappointing campaigns as things stand.

La Liga side Sevilla look set to lose one of their key players this season as Steven N’Zonzi has refused to extend his contract with Rojiblancos amid interest from the likes of Barcelona and Arsenal.

According to Spanish media outlet AS, N’Zonzi did not want to put pen to paper on a new deal as it would have increased his buyout clause well over the current €30 million, which the player feels would ultimately ruin his chances of making a move elsewhere.

Sevilla sporting director Monchi is believed to be eyeing up replacements for the reliable midfielder as he is not certain if N’Zonzi will remain at Sevilla past the January transfer window.

Arsenal’s young Spanish full-back Hector Bellerin has moved to dismiss rumours of a return to boyhood club Barcelona. The 21-year-old joined Barcelona at the age of eight and played his football at the Catalan club’s famous La Masia, before moving on to Arsenal in 2011.

Poland midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak is expected to start against Portugal in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals at the Stade Vélodrome on Thursday night, and will be looking to show Arsenal what they’re missing out following the news he’s set to sign for Paris Saint-Germain.

The Gunners were put off matching the Sevilla man’s €30M asking price in the summer, instead signing Borussia Monchengladbach’s Granit Xhaka, and the talented 26-year-old looks set for a switch to the Parc Des Princes. Krychowiak would provide the steel in the PSG midfield, something the French side have been lacking without the right personnel.

According to Sky Sports Spanish football expert Graham Hunter, Arsenal are unlikely to sign Sevilla’s Polish international defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak this summer, despite stating the Pole would suit Arsenal.

Hunter told Sky Sports HQ: “If Arsenal decide that this fierce, tough-tackling, clever, goal-scoring central-midfielder – who meets the criteria of what critics of Wenger have been saying Arsenal have needed for three four or five seasons – then yes, he would suit them.

Posted on August 05, 2015 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Express, Juventus have rejected a bid of around £8.5million from Sevilla for Spanish striker Fernando Llorente. The Express also claimed that both Arsenal and Premier League rivals Manchester United are interested in signing the giant striker.

It seems that the Bianconeri are not budging from their £10.5million valuation of the striker who they signed from Athletic Bilbao on a free transfer in 2013.

He struggled for first team football last season. His chances of first team football this season have also been decreased by Juve signing Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic. It now seems he is set to leave to leave Turin.
