Deal close – Arsenal to complete deal for £17.1m striker in January

There is no obvious need for a new signing at Arsenal at the moment but we will not rule out the possibility transfers away  from the club.

According to report, Southampton are preparing a deal to tempt Arsenal striker Lucas Perez in the January transfer window, this is according to Goal.

The Premier League side, who visit AFC Bournemouth in the English top-flight on Sunday afternoon, have been linked with the out-of-favour Arsenal striker ahead of the forthcoming January transfer window.

Despite featuring just scantily for Arsenal this term, Perez has scored five goals and provided three assist for Arsenal in nine games in all competition this term.

However Perez, who arrived at the Emirates Stadium back in August following his reported £17.1m switch from Deportivo La Coruna, has found his first-team chances under manager Arsene Wenger come few and far between, with fellow forwards Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud currently ahead of him in the pecking order.

There is no way Arsene Wenger will allow the player leave in January.
