New Delhi: If reports are to be believed, Arsnenal is all set to sign Deportivo striker Lucas Perez into the squad, beating Everton’s move to acquire the 27-year-old player.

Despite Arsene Wenger’s failure to sign in Jamie Vardy and Alezandre Lacazette, he’s keen on signing new attackers into the team before the summer transfer window closes.

Arsenal is facing a bit of a tough tide after fans criticised Wenger for remaining tight with the money. Valencia defender Skhodran Mustafi was heavily talked about as a new player for Arsenal, but due to the staggering amount asked by Valencia, Arsenal is looking for other alternatives.

Everton were on talks about bringing the forward to Goodison Park after former Leicester City scout Steve Walsh recommended the striker to Ronald Koeman.

With 17 goals in 36 appearance in La Liga last season, it was one of the finest run for the forward. Perez, though approached by other clubs, is favouring Arsenal because of its ability to offer Champions League football.
