Lucas Perez has been earmarked for a shock move to Barcelona.

Spanish paper Marca claims the 31-year-old striker is being lined up for a Nou Camp switch after scoring eight goals in 17 games this season.

Barcelona are in the market for an emergency signing to replace the injured Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez, and the former Arsenal man is one of the names on their list.

Perez signed for the Gunners in 2016 but was largely underutilised by Arsene Wenger.

He scored just once in 11 league appearances before returning to former club Deportivo in 2017 and signing for West Ham the following year.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also been tipped for a summer switch to the Nou Camp.

The deadly finisher has 18 months left to run on his current deal and Arsenal may be forced to cash in should the parties fail to agree to a contract extension.
