The Arsenal transfer rumours just keep on coming, but if there is one thing we are all sure of is that Lucas Perez will be leaving the Emirates after just one year at the club. The Spaniard flew back to La Coruña straight after the Cup Final and his greatest wish is to return to his hometown club. He also would not turn down a move to long-time admirers Sevilla if they come calling but he says he has no contact with the Andalucian giants.
He is currently on his holidays, but has made it clear that he wants out of Arsenal, but when asked specifically about the Sevilla rumours he stated: “Who wouldn’t like to join Sevilla?”
“I’m on holiday, disconnected, and I have no idea. I don’t intend to have another season like this one.
“Both Arsenal and the Coach have treated me very well, but I want to play.
“Wenger has been very sincere with me and, with it being a World Cup year, what I want is to play and if I can in Spain then all the better.
Last week, Perez’s agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovell also said nothing will be done until after the holidays, but was also hoping for offers from Spain. “The key date is 3 July when Arsenal’s pre-season begins,” he told Radio Galega. “Anything is possible -the president of Deportivo can do wonders while last year I met with Sevilla, who again are interested.”
He has since also confirmed that two Turkish clubs are interested. “Yes we have received offers, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray have made bids,” Lovelle was quoted as saying by Ajansspor.
“We are considering their offers.
I am thinking now that if no transfer offers can be discussed until all the players return on July 3rd, then there will be no movement at all until then, on any of our players. Surely Wenger will need to speak to each of them in his office before any decisions are made?
