Deportivo have rejected Arsenal’s bid of £17million in installments for Lucas Perez, according to reports.

Arsenal are understood to be battling with Everton to sign the striker, who scored 17 goals in La Liga last season.

But according to Spanish outlet Cadena Ser, the Gunners have failed to activate the 27-year-old’s release clause as they offered the money in two installments rather than up front.

Olivier Giroud remains Arsenal’s only senior centre-forward, with Alexis Sanchez unsuccessfully deputising at the start of the season in the France international’s absence.
