Stadium is likely to be a hive of activity in the final week of the British and until the end of August, with Arsenal rejuvenating their squad.

Unai Emery has already seen the likes of , and vacate north London but further departures are expected to occur, with Perez among those tipped for an exit.

After signing in 2016, Perez struggled to earn regular first-team action under Arsene and was subsequently loaned to last term, where he suffered relegation, but has made cameo appearances during Arsenal’s pre-season campaign.

Perez remains on the market though and Sport Witness cite reports from A Bola that state Portuguese giants are keen on a move for the forward, although they are reluctant to meet Arsenal’s asking price.

Sporting are said to struggle to offer anything more than €5m, below Arsenal’s demands, and would also find it difficult to match Perez’s wages.
