‘We are trying to complete his transfer’ – Arsenal star edging closer to summer exit after agent confirms talks
Arsenal striker Lucas Perez is edging closer to a summer exit according to his agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle.
The agent revealed that Perez wants to make the Spain 2018 World Cup squad and that he needs first team football to achieve his goal.
Lovelle confirmed talks with Fenerbahce and hinted that his client could move to Spain, Istanbul or Paris.
“Lucas wants to make the World Cup so he needs to play regularly,” Lovelle told Fanatik.
“Istanbul, Paris and Spain are all options, we are in talks with Fenerbahce who are a serious option for us.”
Lovelle revealed that he is in talks with Arsenal to resolve the issue over his clients transfer fee.
The agent did not delve into how much the Gunners are demanding.
“I am in talks over sorting this problem over his transfer fee but it would not be right to give any more details regarding this matter,” he added.
Arsenal signed Perez on a £17 million move from Deportivo La Coruna last season but he struggled for playing time.
Perez looks certain to leave over the summer as Arsene Wenger does not have plans for the striker.
The 28-year-old has fallen further down the pecking order following the transfer of Alexandre Lacazette.
The Spanish international was not included in the pre-season Far East tour and was left out of the Emirates Cup squad.
