Deportivo La Coruna are getting a clear run a Arsenal striker Lucas Perez.

AS says Newcastle United have now pulled out of the running for Perez, who has already stated he’d be open to returning to the Riazor this summer.

Depor have failed with one offer of €10m for Perez and have since returned with a new bid of €12m.

Arsenal are seeking €15m to sell, though Perez’s camp is now pushing them for a compromise.

Last week, Perez submitted a transfer request to Arsenal to push through his departure.

Deportivo La Coruna president Tino Fernández has reportedly flown into London to try and conclude a deal for Arsenal striker Lucas Perez.

Arsenal signed Lucas only a year ago on a long-term contract, so there is no pressure on the Gunners to sell in that sense. However, after taking Lucas’ number nine squad number to give to new signing Alexandre Lacazette, it doesn’t seem like the player is near the top of the pecking order.
