Serie A giants reportedly keen on out-of-favour Arsenal star

Serie A giants SS Lazio are reportedly planning a summer move for Arsenal out-of-favour striker Lucas Perez.

The British national daily tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror, who quote Inside Futbol, reports that the Italian side is keen to take the Spaniard attacker, who has spent this campaign on loan at Deportivo La Coruna.

SS Lazio sporting director Igli Tare is said to be an admirer of the player, who has only netted seven league goals in Spain. The Italian giants will be bracing themselves for interest in free-scoring forward Ciro Immobile this summer transfer market.

The 28-year-old Italian striker has netted 29 league goals this term and will undoubtedly draw interest from somewhere else.

Lucas Perez could be seen as a substitution for Italy international but could be someone brought into to provide rivalry for the forward.

The Spaniard striker struggled to settle at the Emirates Stadium and was rapidly sent out on loan, with his long-term future becoming visible to be away from the London side.

This season, in all competitions, Lucas Perez has made 36 appearances, netted 8 goals and provided 8 assists.
