There is still a good chance that the Spanish striker Lucas Perez will be playing his football for someone else next season, as he certainly will not be playing much at all if he does not get the summer transfer away from north london that he has made clear he wants.
Really it is just a matter of finding a club willing to pay the transfer fee, which will not be a lot, and his wages, but for now that has not happened, so even though The Mirror is reporting that Arsene Wenger has taken away the number nine shirt from the Spaniard and given it to his new striker signing Alexandre Lacazette it does not mean for certain that Perez will go. In fact he has been given a new shirt number, 28, so we will have to wait and see on that one.
One current Arsenal player who has no number at all, though, and therefore seems a nailed on certainty to be heading for the exit door this summer is the Costa Rica international Joel Campbell. As reported by Metro the 25-year old’s time as a Gunner is surely u7p after he was given no number after returning from his season long loan in Portugal with Sporting Lisbon, especially as before that he had the number 28 which has now gone to Lucas Perez.
Who else will be heading out of Arsenal as well as Campbell?
