Arsenal tell Premier League duo to pay £20m for Perez

Jack Wilshere could be leaving Arsenal

The Magpies have looked at Liverpool's Danny Ings but he could now stay on Merseyside.

A £17.1m signing from Deportivo La Coruna only last summer, Perez found opportunities hard to come by in 2016/17 after Alexis Sanchez was shifted to a central role and Olivier Giroud assumed the role of back-up striker.

Prior to his arrival in London, the Spanish frontman had built a reputation as a clinical finisher.

Which deals are most likely to be done this summer, according to the bookies?

Benitez has been left frustrated so far, after missing out on first choice Tammy Abraham; the Chelsea striker opting for a loan move to Swansea City.

Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is reportedly wanted by Newcastle United and Brighton and Albion in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal's valuation of Perez may mean that the Magpies choose to step up their interest in alternatives and Benitez will hope that he can inject fresh impetus into his attacking options before his team travel to fellow Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Whether the two newly promoted clubs will want to pay anywhere near that though is a different story - Perez started just two league games last season which would suggest that Wenger's asking price might be a little steep.
