The agent of Lucas Perez appears keen to have the future of the Arsenal striker wrapped up before pre-season training begins on July 3rd.
The 28 year old has made it clear he wants away from the Emirates after a frustrating season in which he played far less than he, and many fans, would have liked.
The Gunners have slapped a €14m fee on the Spaniard, looking to recoup as much as possible of the £17.5 they paid Deportivo la Coruña last August.
There have been a number of loan offers from Spanish clubs but Arsenal are keen to sell, and his agent, Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle, is hoping someone can come up with the right offer in time.
“The key date is July 3rd when Arsenal’s preseason begins,” he told Radio Gallega.
“Anything is possible – the president of Depor can do wonders, while last year I met with Sevilla, who again are interested.”
It seems very unlikely that his former club could get anywhere near to paying what Arsenal want, although Sevilla are much capable of meeting the price-tag.
West Ham, also spuriously linked with Olivier Giroud, are said to be interested too.
