Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
It seems a new striker will finally land at Arsenal in the coming days, but it doesn’t appear to be the wanted signing Gooners have been calling out for.
Report on Thursday morning claim the Gunners were on the verge of agreeing a deal for Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez.
Although, the 27-year-old who turns 28 next month is highly regarded in Spanish League bagged 17 goals and created 10 assists in 36 games last season. I feel the Spanish international is far from the world-class forward we’re craving for at the Emirates stadium.
On the contrary, there’ve been consistent reports this summer that’ve been linking the Gunners with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Gonzalo Higuain, and Alexandre Lacazette, it can be seen that the Spaniard name is not surrounded with rumours like the others.
Although Perez does not have the potential and ability to make the potential to make a big impact at the Emirates this season, the general reaction from the club’s supporters has been; ‘Lucas who?’
Below are some of the best Twitter reactions to the news of Lucas Perez’s proposed €20 million signing for Arsenal:

None of our rivals who are serious about PL would be signing an Everton-level ST. Lucas Perez is the best we can do? Sums up our ambitions!

What a summer though started with Vardy, then Morata, then Higuain, then Madness and now Lucas Perez, some bloke who sells flip flops.
