The agent of Arsenal’s Lucas Perez has denied Spanish reports that the striker has agreed a move to Portuguese club Sporting CP.
The 29-year-old spent last season on loan at Deportivo but managed just eight goals in 35 appearances before returning to North London this summer.
Report in Spain this weekend suggested the striker had sealed a €6m switch to the Lisbon-based club but this has since been denied.
Agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle is cited as saying by CalcioMercato.com: “I have never spoken with Sporting, it is not true.”
The former Spain international has two years remaining on his deal at The Gunners but looks set for a summer exit with new boss Unai Emery said not to be including him in his plans for this season.
