Arsenal’s plan to offload most of their fringe players this summer seem to be gaining much-needed momentum, as it appears there are takers for Spanish attacker Lucas Perez.
Perez joined Arsenal last season from Deportivo La Coruna for a fee in the region £17 million, but failed to get a starting spot in the Gunners’ lineup last season, and has been declared surplus to requirements this season.
Arsenal was disappointed to miss out of Champions League qualification last season and have decided to aggressively build a team that is capable of challenging for the Premier League this season. Which unfortunately means they would have to allow most of the players that were unable to help them reach their goals last season leave.
Perez scored 8 goals in 22 appearances for the Gunners last season, albeit most of his appearances were from the bench.
The media is reporting that Turkish side Fenerbahce are set to offer him a way out of his current misery and they are scheduled to discuss personal terms with him before proceeding to make an official offer to the Gunners.
