Arsenal have offered AS Roma the chance to sign Lucas Perez, according to recent reports.

Reports in Turkey last week claimed Perez was closing in on a move to Fenerbahce but that appears to be far from truth.

Although Perez is still expected to leave the Emirates before the end of the transfer window, reports that he will be plying his trade in the Turkish Super Lig. next season are wide off the mark.

It appears the striker’s future isn’t close to being resolved as Arsenal continue to search for a buyer.

According to the Daily Mail via Football.London, Perez was recently offered to AS Roma by Arsenal.

The report claims the Gunners are desperate to sell Perez to Roma for £13m – £6m less than what we paid for him last summer. It’s even being claimed that we may accept a lesser figure just to get the Spaniard off our books.

The striker who joined Arsenal last summer amid huge fanfare doesn’t have a future at the club any longer after falling right down Wenger’s pecking order. He is now set for a move away from the club but suitors are reluctant to meet Arsenal’s valuation.

A record of one goal in two Premier League starts last season appears to have done a lot of damage to the striker’s value considering he was one of La Liga ‘s best strikers just over a year ago.
