Everton have made a loan offer for want-away Arsenal forward Lucas Perez, a report claims.

According to Sky Sport, the Gunners are considering the offer having made Perez available to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The 28-year-old struggled for first team chances last season under Arsene Wenger and has been linked with a return to Deportivo La Coruna.

He was reportedly unhappy about losing the No.9 shirt to new signing Alexandre Lacazette, and has been pushing for an exit.

However, Perez’ agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle hinted to Sky Sports News that former club Deportivo are in pole position.

He said: “I think the £10.9m (€12m) that Deportivo La Coruna have offered Arsenal is a great deal. Deportivo received £12.7m (€14m) when they sold him to them last summer.

“They are giving everything to make this transfer possible. Lucas wants to play but he has a contract with Arsenal. I am hopeful an agreement can be reached. Lucas wants to play in Spain.”
