Arsenal ponder bid for Newcastle striker Ayoze Perez

Arsenal are eyeing Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez.

The Sun says the Gunners have reportedly joined Inter Milan in the race for £25million-rated Perez .

Napoli are also thought to be chasing the Spanish forward, 25, after netting a career best 12 Premier League goals this term.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is hoping to add him to their squad this summer, as he eyes up a host of lower-fee transfers.

Perez has been at Newcastle since 2014, but recently admitted he would be open to new opportunities.

After scoring a hat-trick against Southampton last month, Perez admitted: “In the summer there is going to be options.

“That means I have done something well. I'll be up for hearing what is coming.

“I can hear what is coming for me, what they offer for me, but it doesn't mean I am going to leave 100 per cent at the end of the season."
