Sabah have claimed the agent of Lucas Perez, Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle, is currently in Istanbul ahead of the Arsenal forward’s potential move to Fenerbahce.

The Spanish agent spent last night at Fenerbahce’s base Kalamıs, and Sabah report talks are ongoing with ‘the final details being discussed’. Only last night it was reported the Arsenal player had handed in a transfer request to the Premier League side.

Perez has been eyeing a move back to Spain, but no club has so far come forward with a financial deal to please Arsenal. Whilst Arsene Wenger has publicly spoken about allowing Perez a move, Arsenal aren’t going to be taken advantage of.

Recent reports in Turkey suggested Perez’s move to Fenerbahce is imminent after Deportivo La Coruna admitted defeat in their attempt to sign Spaniard.

On Thursday we covered claims which not only said personal terms are agreed, but also terms between the two clubs. Perez’s agent sorting out the ‘final details’ will hopefully bring that broad agreement to a conclusion.
