Lucas Perez’s summer long drama over a move away from Arsenal appears to finally be coming to an end, but not necessarily how Arsenal wanted it to.

According to La Voz de Galicia, Perez’s agent has met with Arsene Wenger and has come to an agreement over his player leaving the club.

However, Arsenal were looking to sell the player but the report suggests that it could just be a loan move.

It is thought that he will move back to Deportivo – the club Arsenal purchased him for last summer – but Newcastle and Brighton are both thought to be interested in securing his signature.

He has not been able to secure a spot in the Arsenal team and made just two Premier League appearances.

He was largely limited to appearances in the cup and Champions League and despite scoring seven times in those ten appearances, did not do enough to convince Wenger he was worthy of more playing time.
