Galatasaray make offer Arsenal for 28-year-old star facing uncertain future

Galatasaray have made Arsenal an offer for out-of-favour striker Lucas Perez according to reports in Turkey.

Fotospor report that the Lions have made Arsenal an offer to loan Perez and offer him first team football next season.

Perez has struggled for playing time at Arsenal this season scoring eight times and providing six assists in 22 games.

The Spanish striker does however, have another three-years remaining on his contract and Arsenal could struggle to recoup the £17 million transfer fee (Transfermarkt) paid to Deportivo last season.

The 28-year-old did recently reveal that he faces an uncertain future at Arsenal and that he will hold talks with the club to find a solution.

“That’s a question that I will have to answer in the summer,” he said when asked whether he will stay with Arsenal in an interview with Marca Plus.

“I can not say anything. We have to wait. Right now I want to play and prove my worth because that’s why I came to Arsenal. I have that hope. In the summer, we will discuss between the club and me what the best [solution] is but now I only think in the present and that is to try to play.”

Perez has been linked with a return to Deportivo in the Daily Mail but the Gunners would be unlikely to get back what they paid for him.

A loan move could present the opportunity for Perez to raise his profile – and valuation.
