Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern popped the champagne last night to celebrate their passage to the knock-out stages of the Champions League and are now feeling positive ahead of what’s set to be a hectic transfer window.
27-year-old Perez has been in fine-form for the La Liga overachievers this season, scoring 10 goals in 14 games, including a strike at the weekend against Sevilla where Arsenal scouts were keeping tabs on the player.
Deportivo, currently sat sixth in La Liga and just three points behind the Champions League spots, will be desperate to keep hold of their prized asset but Arsenal’s financial power could change their stance- whilst Perez may be keen on his chance to play Champions League football.
The Gunners await Monday’s draw to discover who their Round of 16 opponents will be, with a potential clash against Real Madrid or Barcelona on the cards, but the North London side know that they will face at least two more games in Europe.
Arsenal fans, is this a player you want to sign? Let us know in the comments!
