Arsenal outcast Lucas Perez linked up with the first-team squad at London Colney for the start of pre-season training.

Perez’s future at the Emirates could however, be in doubt according to reports in Turkey.

The AMK newspaper claim that Perez has been offered to Galatasaray through agents.

Per the source, the Spanish forward has given the green light and is keen on joining the Super Lig giants.

The transfer rests on head coach Fatih Terim who will make the final decision after analyzing whether the 29-year-old would be the right fit in his squad.

Terim will be presented with a report from his analysis team regarding the striker before he makes his final call.

The latest report is interesting considering Galatasaray president Mustafa Cengiz told Turkish-Football he had close ties with Arsenal and Chelsea when asked about transfer activity this summer.

Perhaps he was hinting at Perez but it is more likely he was referring to Joel Campbell who the Lions have expressed a keen interest in signing.

Perez has another two-years remaining on his Arsenal contract.

The striker joined Arsenal from Deportivo La Coruna in 2016, but struggled for playing time and was loaned back to his former club last summer.

Perez was unable to prevent Deportivo from relegation out of La Liga.

Galatasaray won the Super Lig for the 21st time this season and will compete in the Champions League group stage next season.
