According to reports, Lucas Perez’s move from Arsenal to Deportivo La Coruna is edging closer before the end of the transfer window.
Arsenal began the summer demanding £13m for the striker they signed from the Spanish club last summer in a £17.1m deal.
But the Gunners are now set to accept a loan move with a modest fee.
Perez started only four matches after Christmas last season and did not start a game after the FA Cup win at Sutton in February.
Arsenal had wanted a transfer fee beyond £10m but are increasingly resigned to accepting a loan deal.
There has been interest from Valencia and Marseille but Perez is steadfast in his determination to return to Deportivo.
The Spanish club wants to do a loan deal for a fee of around £4m with a view to a future transfer.
Now report suggest Lazio have launched a late bid for the unwanted striker who was stripped off his number 9 shirt with the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.
However, according to TMW, Lazio are now poised to make a move to take him to Italy.
The Serie club are in need of a forward and they are ready to offer Perez a route out of Arsenal.
