​Sevilla launch £​17.5m bid for Arsenal striker Lucas Perez

Sevilla are lining up a £17.5m bid for Arsenal forward Lucas Perez, according to AS.

The Spaniard only arrived in north London from Deportivo La Coruna last summer, but has since failed to establish himself in Arsene Wenger's side and looks now set for a return to La Liga.

Perez, 28, has managed seven goals in his 21 appearances for the Gunners this season, however he has been unable to push himself in front of Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck on the pecking order.

Despite Sevilla's reported interest, Perez's agent recently revealed his client's desire to return to Deportivo if he were to leave the Emirates.

He said: "Lucas is also thinking and dreaming of Deportivo because he is a heart-felt guy, always."
