Just after it was confirmed that the Arsenal defender Calum Chambers was moving to Fulham on loan, we have now heard from Lucas’ Perez’s agent, who denied any contact with Sporting Lisbon the other day, now admits that his client could be moving across London as well… CalcioMercato reported today…
Despite little contact being made the other day, Lucas Perez’s agent, Rodrigo Lovelle, spoke exclusively to Sam Wilson of CalcioMercato.com this morning, confirming that his player could well be on the way out of Arsenal and to West Ham.
Lovelle said, when asked about contact with West Ham: “West Ham is an option, he might leave [Arsenal]”
Then, Lovelle justified the potential move, stating that “West Ham keeps him in London and in the Premier League, and they are a great club.”
So, it appears that now a move for Lucas Perez is finally beginning to materialise, in a deal that could see him move across London for as little as €6 million, a fraction of the €20 million Arsenal signed Lucas for from Deportivo.
I can’t say I am surprised at this sale, like I was with Chambers’ loan, but the Spaniard could be a good buy. One thing I will say about these deals is that it means that Arsenal don’t seriously consider Fulham or West Ham to be rivals for the Top Six positions!
