Arsenal transfer news and rumours: Lucas Perez eyes Emirates exit as Milan ponder swoop for Spaniard

Arsenal winger Lucas Perez is eager for a summer exit at the Emirates, despite only signing from Deportivo last summer.

The Spaniard has been unable to nail down a first-team place this term, which has led AC Milan to ponder a summer move, claim the Metro.

The Gunners paid £18m to snap up Perez last summer and will ideally like to recoup most of that in any sale.

But with just two starts in the Premier League this campaign, a sale now looks imminent.

Jack Wilshere not thinking about Arsenal future – ‘My main concern is trying to keep Bournemouth in this league’

Jack Wilshere claims he has to focus on winning a Bournemouth starting place before deciding on his uncertain Arsenal future.

The on-loan Gunners midfielder came off the bench to set up Josh King’s winner against West Ham.

But the England star, who was an unused sub at Old Trafford in the last game, said: “I want to play every minute that’s why I came here but I’ve always been a team player wherever I’ve been. I respect the manager’s decision and the team have justified it so we’ll see what happens next week.

“I’m not thinking about my future. I’ve got a year left at Arsenal and as soon as the season ends I’ll sit down and I’ll think about it.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil insists his future at the club does NOT depend on Arsene Wenger

Mesut Ozil says his future at Arsenal does NOT depend on Arsene Wenger.

The German international is heading into the last 12 months of his deal at the Emirates, and Mirror Sport understands he has been offered a new deal potentially worth a massive £280,000-a-week.

Ozil, who admits he harbours a desire to win the Champions League, says he is yet to decide on his future.

“Everything is open. We had talks with Arsenal. Right now I concentrate on the current season,” Ozil told Bild .

“Arsene Wenger was one of the main reasons I joined Arsenal. But I know that sometimes things go very fast in football and that you can never plan something.

“This is why it would be wrong to say that my future depends on my coach.”

Arsenal and Chelsea scouts both in attendance to check on Wolves’ Portuguese star Helder Costa

Chelsea and Arsenal have made a check on Wolves’ exciting attacking ace Helder Costa.

Scouts from both clubs were at Wolves’ 1-0 Championship home win over Rotherham.

But the Portuguese ace, 23, was unable to add to his 10-goal tally in all competitions. He had a first half penalty saved and was subbed in the 66 minute.

Wolves signed Costa permanently in January for a club record £13million after he impressed on loan from Benfica.

But super agent Jorge Mendes is already believed to be hawking Costa to bigger Premier League clubs for £20million this summer.

Lincoln management duo explain the 90 minutes that shows Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger remains a class act

Arsene Wenger spent 90 minutes after Arsenal’s FA Cup win over Lincoln talking in his office with the non-leaguers’ managerial duo the Cowley brothers – “something we will cherish forever” says Imps chief Danny.

Wenger’s men ended a horror week with a 5-0 win over the National League outfit to secure an FA Cup semi-final spot, but pressure continues to grow on the long-time Gunners boss.

Some Arsenal supporters marched around the Emirates Stadium ahead of kickoff calling for Wenger to leave the club, after the club’s Champions League capitulation at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Wenger’s contract expires at the end of the season and while a new two-year deal is on the table, he is yet to sign. Nevertheless, at 67 he has little intention of retiring.

And the Cowley duo cannot speak highly enough of the Gunners chief, whose enthusiasm they say remains undimed.
