Agent: Arsenal to decide if Perez can leave

Striker Lucas Perez’s future will be decided by Arsenal, according to the player's agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle. 

The 28-year-old is eager to secure a move away from the Gunners where he endured a frustrating campaign last term as he struggled to break into manager Arsene Wenger's first team.

Perez has been linked with a move to Newcastle United, and Lovelle has revealed that there are a number of clubs interested in his client, but added it is up to Arsenal if he is sold.

Lovelle told AS newspaper in Spain: "Two clubs in Spain have already contacted Perez for a transfer, Sevilla also want to sign him, and a German team and Fenerbahce are negotiating to sign the player."

He added: "Perez is a footballer who has a three-year contract with Arsenal and his future depends entirely on the decision of the club.

"If the club decide to close the transfer for him they must convince Arsenal.

"Which clubs can reach an agreement with Arsenal can sign him. There is no problem for us."
