Fenerbahce are set for talks with Arsenal over a possible loan for Lucas Perez.

  • The Turkish side are unable to sign him permanently due to FFP
  • Lucas wants to leave for more first team football
  • He was left in England as Arsenal flew out to Australia

Lucas was left behind in England as the Arsenal squad flew out for friendlies in Australia and China.

The Spaniard is expected to leave the club after a difficult first season at the club.

Fenerbahce are one of the interested clubs and their administrative manager, Hasan Cetinkaya, is reportedly ready to meet Arsenal to discuss a loan for the striker.

Arsenal want £13m for Lucas, but Fenerbahce would find that difficult to pay due to Financial Fair Play regulations. Hence they are hopeful of a loan being agreed.

Lucas, who Arsenal signed last summer for £17m, made just 21 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring seven goals.
