FORWARD LUCAS PEREZ has been left out of the Deportivo La Coruna squad to face Real Betis on Friday as speculation intensifies that a move to Arsenal is imminent.

Deportivo confirmed in a short statement on Thursday that Lucas has permission to miss the match, fuelling reports that a deal with Arsenal is close to being completed.

The 27-year-old netted 17 times in 36 league appearances last season and continued that form in the opening game of the new campaign last Friday, scoring in the 2-1 home victory over Eibar.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has found himself under increasing pressure to strengthen his squad following a low-key transfer window, with sections of the club’s support particularly critical of the Frenchman’s reluctance to spend.
