LUCAS PEREZ is being chased by Marseille and Bayer Leverkusen.
The Spanish forward was all set to join Everton last summer on the say so of new director of football Steve Walsh.
But he opted for Arsenal at the 11th hour and has endured a nightmare 12 months in North London following his move from Deportivo La Coruna for £17million.
The arrival of Alexandre Lacazette and the humiliation of the French forward nabbing his No 9 shirt without boss Arsene Wenger even telling him, proves his days at the Emirates are numbered.
Perez was not part of the 25-man Gunners squad touring Australia and China alongside Carl Jenkinson, Kieran Gibbs and Mathieu Debuchy.
SunSport have been told by sources close to the player he is desperate to revive his career elsewhere and reports of a staggering 10-year deal offered by old club Deportivo are wide of the mark.
Marseille and Bayer Leverkusen showing strong interest and a bid of around £11m should be enough for the 28-year-old who started just two Premier League games last season.
Leverkusen are looking for additional firepower after the departure of Javier Hernandez.
The former Manchester United striker is close to a return to the Premier League with West Ham.
Turkish giants Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are also interested, but are not prepared to match the numbers quoted for the forward.
