Well, that is if ‘Sky sources’ are believable.

Lucas Perez, better known as ‘Lucas’, will apparently be coming to Arsenal as reports on Sky Sports are claiming this. This is also being reported on (the more reliable) BBC too.

Everton are said to have triggered a release clause in the contract of Lucas that had him poised to join them from Deportivo La Coruna. But Arsenal have jumped ahead of them with the Gunners ‘close to landing’ the striker by all account.

Arsenal’s talks with the 27-year-old aren’t as ‘advanced’ as Everton’s were but the fact he’ll get Champions League football this season will see him join us with a fee of £17m involved.

With attempts to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon failing Arsene Wenger turned to Lucas, who scored 17-goals in La Liga last season, but will he be the man that arrives?
