Arsenal are expected to complete the signing of Deportivo La Coruna striker Lucas Perez in the coming days, according to Sky Sports.
Wenger has been in search of a striker all summer and has finally found a breakthrough. Perez is closing in on a move to the Emirates and will be the Gunners’ fourth summer signing. Wenger had attempted to sign Olympic Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette but the French club were reluctant to sell the striker.
Arsenal are now on the verge of signing Perez after making a late move for the striker. The club sent officials to Spain on Thursday morning to negotiate a deal to sign the striker and an agreement was reached immediately the club indicated its willingness to activate the player’s release clause.
Perez was given permission by his club to fly into London on Friday and undergo a medical at Arsenal.
The player would need to agree personal terms with the club before a move is finalized but that is not expected to be a problem.
This will come as good news to Arsenal fans who have been hoping the club sign a striker this summer. Perez scored 17 league goals for Deportivo La Coruna last season and would compete with Olivier Giroud for a spot in Arsenal’s starting xi.
