Agent claims Perez wants Arsenal transfer move completed by July
Arsene Wenger is likely to lose the services of one of his first team stars according to the player’s representative.
Several Arsenal stars have been linked with a move away from the club following a rollercoaster 2016/17 campaign which saw them finish outside the Premier League’s top four and then win the FA Cup.
Lucas Perez is one of the players who has been considering a departure after only one season at the Emirates stadium.
And according to the 28-year-old’s agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle, Perez is now looking to find a new club before the Gunners begin pre-season in July.
“The idea is to be able to play for another club. We want to leave and Arsenal already know.” Lovelle told Radio Gallega
“Do you know anyone who is happy but has no opportunities?
“The key date is 3rd July when Arsenal’s preseason begins. Anything is possible – the president of Depor can do wonders while last year I met with Sevilla, who again are interested.”
Perez made eleven appearances, several of which were from the bench, and scored two goals in the Premier League last season.
