Lucas Perez is very close to sealing a move away from Arsenal to Fenerbahce, according to reports in Turkey.

The striker had a frustrating first season at the Emirates and has been heavily linked with a transfer away from the club in the last one month. He has been heavily linked with a move to Turkey and it was claimed that Fenerbahce and Galatasaray are battling each other for his services.

However, Fenerbahce have now emerged as favorites to sign the striker, with Daily Cannon claiming talks are in advanced stages for Perez to leave Arsenal.

According to Turkish outlet AMK via The Daily Star, Fenerbahce are in advanced talks with the striker over a potential summer move.

The Turkish giants have made signing a striker their priority and they see Perez as a very good target.

Perez completed a £17m move to Arsenal last summer but couldn’t get the opportunities needed to make an impact here.

He has become frustrated with his situation and is now looking for a move to where he can play regularly. With Arsenal set to sign a striker, the club is also open to the idea of selling the former Deportivo La Coruna man to free up space for potential arrivals.

Personally, I would have loved to see Arsenal keep the Spaniard here because he was superb almost every time he was in the pitch but that won’t be possible especially as the club are planning to sign another striker.
