Sevilla are interested in signing Arsenal striker Lucas Perez, according to reports.
Perez joined Arsenal for £17m last August but has failed to secure a regular spot in Wenger’s starting xi.
The 28-year-old has only managed a handful of appearances since he became a Gunner and is currently behind Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck in Wenger’s pecking order.
Last week, his agent suggested to reporters that his client was unhappy with his situation, although insisted that they aren’t thinking of a move just yet.
According to The Sun via The Daily Star, Sevilla have been keeping tabs on the striker and could make a move for his services in the summer transfer window.
Perez is keen to play for his country in the next world cup and Sevilla are prepared to offer him the chance to play regularly so he can fulfil his dream of playing in football’s biggest tournament.
Perez has been involved in 12 Arsenal goals this season ( Seven goals and five assists) despite his limited game time and will definitely not be short of offers.
The report indicates that Arsenal will be willing to let the striker leave if it can recoup the fee paid to sign him last summer and there is a big chance that we will as Sevilla isn’t the only club interested in the striker. AC Milan and Everton have been linked with the forward in recent weeks and should they all firm up their interests, it will spark a bidding war for the striker which may favor Arsenal.
