Arsenal are facing a potential mass exodus this summer, as the futures of many first-team stars remain under scrutiny.

The likes of Kieran Gibbs, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere are all rapidly approaching the final 12 months of their contract, with little progress made in regards to an extension, whilst other departures could see the likes of David Ospina leave the Emirates Stadium.

Spanish outlet La Voz De Galicia reports that Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is also targeting an exit from the club this summer if Arsene Wenger remains as manager, as he’s frustrated with his lack of opportunities in his first season in England.

Perez has been consistently overlooked following his £17m transfer last summer and is reportedly eyeing a return to Deportivo La Coruna, who he left last summer to take his opportunity in the Premier League.

With that move not working out as anticipated, Perez is keen to return to his homeland and the effects of a lack of first-team football on Perez’ career could be huge- as he’s unlikely to make Spain’s World Cup squad next summer, having pushed himself into contention for Los Rojas’ squad last season.
