Arsenal planning surprise move for Newcastle United star?

Ayoze Perez news

Ayoze Perez on Arsenal radar

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to compete with the likes of Inter Milan and Napoli in the race to sign Newcastle United's Ayoze Perez this summer.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed his best-ever season in the Premier League this term with 11 goals with seven of those coming from his previous eight appearances.

His glowing form has led to suggestions that he could pursue a bigger challenge away from the Magpies this summer and The Sun claims that the Gunners are one of the clubs in the running to sign him.

Inter and Napoli are also said to hold an interest in the former Tenerife graduate but the Gunners could have the edge, should the winger decide to stay put in the Premier League.

Perez has another two years remaining on his current contract with Newcastle United and reports indicate that they could accept a fee of around £25m this summer, should he decline to pen an extension.
