Lucas Perez is set to leave Arsenal
Perez is desperately looking for a way out of the Emirates this summer after falling down the pecking order and being stripped of the No.9 shirt.
Deportivo, who sold the Spaniard to Arsenal a year ago for around £17m, are the favourites to win the race for him – although Newcastle are interested too.
So far, however, Deportivo have failed to agree a fee for Perez as they are reluctant to meet Arsenal’s £13m asking price.
According to La Voz de Galicia, that has sparked the Spanish club’s president, Fernandez, into action and he is set to fly to London to hold face-to-face talks with Gunners chiefs.
Fernandez is hoping that such a move will help a deal for Perez get over the line before the transfer window slams shut.
