Lucas Perez is being offered an extraordinary contract to return to former club

Deportivo La Coruna are so desperate to get Perez back home that they're willing to offer him a 10-year deal

Lucas Perez has had a rough time of it since moving to north London.

There was more chance of Arsene Wenger doing his zip up at the first attempt than Perez getting a game last season.

The arrival of fellow forward Alexandre Lacazette would have done little to cheer Perez up, especially when the Frenchman took his number nine shirt.

But there is still one club out there that love Perez.

Deportivo La Coruna, Perez’s former club, are willing to offer Perez a 10-year deal, according to AS.

Nope, that’s not a typo.

Depor actually want to tie Perez, who was born in A Coruna, down to a contract until the age of 38.

Perez scored 17 goals in his last full season at Deportivo before heading to Arsenal for £17.1million.

But he played just 11 times in the Premier League last season, and his first-team chances appear even more limited this year.

Deportivo would have to pay Arsenal around £10mil to re-sign Perez, with Fenerbahce also reportedly keen on the Spaniard.

The plan is to keep Perez on as a technical secretary when he retires from playing duties.

Now that’s how to treat a player. Take note Arsenal.
