The agent of Lucas Perez says that the best offer Arsenal have for the the player right now comes from Deportivo la Coruña, and that he has to convince the club to accept it.
Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle is waiting for Arsenal to make a decision one way or the other as he tries to secure a deal to bring the Spanish striker back to his former club.
Speaking to La Voz de Galicia, he said, “I’m waiting for Arsenal to come back to me, but the best offer they have on the table for Lucas is from Deportivo.
“At Arsenal they know he’s going to play very little there and they know that Deportivo want him. It would be good for everyone to sell Lucas Perez.
“We have to convince them.”
One might wonder if mouthing off in the press about how unfair the club have been is the best tactic to convince them, and the offer of €9m is well below what the Gunners paid for Perez last August.
It is thought that Deportivo are willing to come back with an improved offer, above €10m, but for now he remains an Arsenal player.
