The Turkish league giants have been closely linked with Perez over recent months.
The Istanbul based rivals have both prioritised signing a striker over the summer.
Galatasaray recently sold Lukas Podolski to Kobe in Japan.
Fenerbahce meanwhile are set to lose Moussa Sow and Emmanuel Emenike.
Perez joined Arsenal from Deportivo for £17 million (BBC) last summer but has struggled for first team football scoring just one goal in 11 Premier League appearances this season.
The Spanish striker played just 265 minutes of Premier League football this season.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger actually revealed that he is sorry that Perez did not received more action this season.
“He’s a top quality striker but I couldn’t give him the games he wants and deserves, I confess that. I feel sorry for him on that front,” Wenger was quoted as saying in the Independent.
Both Galatasaray and Fenerbahce will feature in the Europa League along with Arsenal this season.
The Lions finished the league in fourth place while Fenerbahce finished in third position.
