Lazio ask for Lucas Perez

Lazio have set their sights on Arsenal striker Lucas Perez, who spent this season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna.

The 29-year-old centre-forward was bought from Deportivo in the summer of 2016 for €14m, but never settled in the Premier League.

He returned to his old club on loan a year later, but despite eight goals and seven assists in 35 competitive games, failed to prevent Depor’s relegation.

According to Spanish site Inside Futbol and several English papers, Lazio director Igli Tare is a fan of Perez and wants to bring him to the Stadio Olimpico.

It’s believed they’ll try to strike a deal to sign the Spaniard on loan with either an option or an obligation to buy at the end of the season.
