Newcastle favourites to sign Arsenal's Lucas Perez

09 August 2017

The club have so far managed to bring in five new faces this summer, though the manager feels the need to add more and has been growing impatient over his side's lacklustre activity in the transfer market.

Perez is out of favour at Arsenal following the signing of Alexandre Lacazette for a reported $A89.4 million fee and Arsene Wenger has suggested the forward is free to leave Emirates Stadium after a single season at the club.

And the uncertainties that remain over striker Dwight Gayle's availability in their first league match against Tottenham on Sunday mean that the former Liverpool manager is keen for additions.

"But I say top four, I really think there won't be many points between any of these teams".

A number of players are surplus to requirements at St James' Park and Benitez and managing director Lee Charnley have been told those men need to leave to balance the books. "We are now trying to work in different directions at the time". But the most they've spent on any one player is the £10m for Championship winger Jacob Murphy.

Newcastle United are the latest club to join the race for wantaway Arsenal's Lucas Perez after Rafael Benitez expressed his admiration of the striker.

Lucas Perez has been linked with an exit from Arsenal since the winter transfer window.

Newcastle are looking at two loan options as the start of the Premier League draws ever closer, according to a reliable journalist.

"When I chose to stay, I was expecting another thing", he said after Sunday's friendly win over Verona. "Now I will try to do my best to be sure that the team we have will be good enough to compete and stay as high as we can in the Premier League".
