Arsenal to offer Perez ‘second chance’

Arsenal will offer a second chance to striker Lucas Perez who is currently on loan at Deportivo La Coruna, according to reports.

The 29-year-old initially joined the Gunners from Depor in a €19m deal in August 2016 but he struggled for playing time, making just one start in the Premier League.

 Perez then re-joined the Galician club on a loan deal in August 2017, but he has netted just five goals in 23 appearances this campaign.

The London Evening Standard now report the striker is hopeful of a career revival in North London, with Arsenal prepared to include him in next year’s first-team squad.

Perez was booed off by a section of his own club’s fans in the recent 1-1 draw with Las Palmas, with Depor seemingly bound for relegation to the second tier.
