The future of Arsenal striker Lucas Perez looks ever more complicated with conflicting reports coming from the UK press and the Spanish press about the player’s next club.

The Evening Standard report that Deportivo La Coruna is still the likeliest destination for the player with a compromise on a £14m asking price close to being found.

They also say though that Everton could still come in with a late bid for the 28 year old, while Swansea City have had a loan enquiry knocked back by the Gunners.

In Spain, the Estadio Deportivo report that Real Betis are hopeful their own loan bid will be accepted as they are prepared to add an obligation to purchase the player for a high transfer fee at the end of the season.

Another local Spanish newspaper La Voz de Galicia (via Mundo Deportivo) say that Deportivo will turn their attentions to Leicester City’s Islam Slimani instead, leaving Perez in an uncertain position one week before the end of the transfer window.
