DELIVERING: LUCAS PEREZ TO ARSENAL

Arsenal are set to trump Everton by signing the Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez as they seek to bolster the attacking ranks at the Emirates Stadium.

Lucas, who scored 17 goals last season and opened his account for this season with the winner against Elbar last Friday, has a buy-out clause of about £17 million (S$30.1 million).

Everton had been prepared to meet that amount and had even agreed personal terms in principle with the 27-year-old, only for Arsenal to emerge late as suitors.
