Arsenal demand £13.4m for star man targeted by Newcastle & Turkish giants

Arsenal striker Lucas Perez has made it pretty clear that he does not see himself as having a future at the Emirates.

Perez has grown frustrated with his lack of playing time and the way he has been treated.

Spanish website La Voz De Galicia quote Perez as telling them: “They [Arsenal] are not behaving well with me.

“The thing of taking the shirt number without telling me to give it to a companion. It seems to me the last straw.

The Evening Standard report that Newcastle United are interested in Perez but that Arsenal are demanding £13.4 million.

Per the source, the Magpies are not prepared to match the Gunners valuation.

The newly promoted Premier League outfit are reported to favour a loan move.

The report claims that Deportivo La Coruna made a £9 million bid for Perez last week but that Arsenal want an additional £4 million.

The Gunners did sign Perez from Deportivo for £17 million last summer but he struggle for playing time under the stewardship of Arsene Wenger.

Newcastle face competition from Fenerbahce who also want Perez on a temporary move next season.

The Yellow Canaries have been working on a move for two months but the players agent revealed that Arsenal are not keen on a loan deal.

The Gunners want to sell Perez on a permanent move.

The striker’s agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle recently told told AS that Fenerbahce are interested in his client but that Arsenal want around €12 million for his signature: “The truth is that the Turkish club has been interested in the signing of Lucas Perez for two months, I do not think it is very difficult to do, but Arsenal will not let it go. Have the assignment of Perez.

“Several clubs in Europe are interested in Lucas, but Arsenal want to make up part of the money that paid Deportivo the Coruña last summer, the club has paid 21 million euros for Lucas, and I think he is willing to accept a figure of around 12 million euros for his departure,” he added.
