Perez return chances ‘remote’

The chances of Arsenal striker Lucas Perez returning to Deportivo La Coruna this summer are ‘remote’ according to Galician club’s president.

Tino Fernandez confirmed Depor had contacted the North London club regarding the 28-year-old’s future, but he does not have optimism his club can forge a deal.

"Lucas is at a great club who made a big financial effort for him, there's a high level there and also the desire of the club is not to look for an exit," Fernandez is quoted as saying by various media.

"We've spoken to Arsenal, we were interested and we informed them of that, although it's true that that was days ago and other things have happened since then, like the fact that he will not be with the team for a few games.

“The possibility of a return to Depor? It’s remote.”

Perez, who has also been linked to Sevilla, was not included in Arsenal’s 25-man pre-season trip to Australia and China.
