La Liga side desperate to sign Arsenal striker but face tough competition

Lucas Perez's agent accuses Arsenal of pricing striker out of transfer

"We missed some targets at the beginning, and I think we're paying for that".

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez met the Brazilian in London on Wednesday while he was attending the Premier League launch and he hopes to sign him before Sunday's opener against Tottenham. "The team spirit's quite good, and hopefully we replicate that this season".

The Magpies have signed five players so far this summer at a cost of just over £30million, while a number of players, including Daryl Murphy, Yoan Gouffran, Vurnon Anita and Florian Thauvin, have left.

However, the Spanish club are struggling to meet the Gunners' reported £13m asking price and talks are rumbling on. "We must have a game plan and try and stick to it". "We will continue to fight because the truth is that he [Perez] is looking forward to joining us".

Deportivo La Coruna are still hopeful of re-signing Arsenal striker Lucas Perez but don't believe they can match competing offers.

The 27-year-old has been at St James' Park since a controversial switch from Sunderland in 2014 and stayed with their club following their relegation to the Championship in 2015-16. "At the end of last season, Mike Ashley said he would give every penny he had to Rafa. But with his experience and know-how, he will set the team up to be very hard to beat".
