The Goodison Park outfit have been tracking the forward for some time but Spanish publications El Confidencial and Marca both suggest the Gunners are winning the race for his signature, with the latter claiming talks are at an advanced stage.

It is understood a £17million bid would activate the 27-year-old’s release clause but it now appears as if Everton will have to turn their attention to other targets, as Perez is destined for the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal themselves have missed out on a number of transfer targets this summer but, if reports are to be believed, boss Arsene Wenger is finally set to make a breakthrough.

A striker has been high on his wanted list and, after missing out on Alexandre Lacazette and Jamie Vardy, he could have finally found his man in the form of Perez.
