Could Lucas Perez return to Arsenal after PL loan deal?

Lucas Perez is expected to move out on loan today, but could he return and play for Arsenal next season?

The Spaniard had a hard time last season, struggling to break into Arsene Wenger’s first-team plans despite impressing when featuring.

Perez now looks set on the exit door, in hope of retaining a place in the Spain international squad for next summer’s World Cup, and his preference is known to be a return to his home country.

A deal is yet to be struck with any side however, but both Everton and Newcastle United appear keen on a temporary deal for the forward.

The Blues have had interest shown in Kevin Mirallas this week, and could possibly looking for cover for his exit, and Lucas would fit in well at Goodison Park in my opinion.

Should a deal fail to be agreed prior to the 11PM deadline, then the Spanish transfer window remains open until tomorrow, and a deal would likely be struck for a move back to Spain as he intended.

A Premier League deal may not be best for his intentions to break back into the Spain international squad, but could well give him a better chance of playing for Arsenal again in the future.

The Gunners know that the forward didn’t get a fair shout in the first-team in his tough opening season, but should he enjoy life in the Premier League this term, he could well return to the Emirates next season.

Should Arsenal push for a Premier League stay for Lucas? Does he deserve another chance at our club?

  1. Who said Arsene can't do grime? says:

    Another player going from strength to strength under Wenger’s guidance

  2. Eddo says:

    He will return only if Wenger is sacked

  3. justforlaugh says:

    He already announced to the world Wenger is a cheat. He will never play again for arsenal as long as Wenger is manager.

    1. Quantic Dream says:

      If Wenger gave to Perez even a quarter of the chances he has given to Ramsh*t and Xhaka then Perez would have turned into a goalmachine.

  4. Godswill says:

    His predicament whose fault?

  5. Turbo says:

    Well if we ever get a new coach in, then who knows? He might relish the opportunity to be given a real chance. If not, seems highly unlikely and I hope he stays in La Liga where he can be a hero to his squad. He’s probably pissed off enough and smart enough to realize that any promises AW might make to him in the future cannot be trusted. It would serve AW right if Lucas has an awesome season and scouts come back to AQ and say “you know we REALLY need to get this Lucas Perez guy back in here!” Just for giggles in that case I’d be tempted to pretend I’m considering but ONLY if he gives me back the 9 jersey, keep him dangling for a couple weeks, then tell him to F off. (As an aside to a similar situation, also curious to see how Nolito will do back in Spain this season.)
