It is neither Jamie Vardy nor Alexandre Lacazette but it was Lucas Perez is the oe preparing to come to Arsenal for 20 million euros. When heard about Lucas Perez for the first time, people wondered, “Who is Lucas Perez? Why not buy Lacazette instead of an anonymous name like this?” However, Arsene Wenger must have a reason to recruit this Spanish striker. The question is whether Lucas Perez is a top-class striker that Arsenal has been looking for? Will he meet the expectations of many Arsenal fans?
Lucas Perez was born in Coruna but started his professional career at Atletico Madrid C, then he moved to Rayo Vallecano. Here he spent a year playing at Rayo Vallecano B before being promoted to the first team. Perez, however, was not as effective and played only seven games and scored two goals here. Lucas Perez had to move to Karparty Lviv in Ukraine in search of a chance. 15 goals out of 60 games is not too bad of a performance, that was also the reason that the he was recruited by top Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv. But this was another mistake since he was not placed in any match and had to move to PAOK in Greece in the summer of 2013.
PAOK was where the striker started to find himself after scoring 12 goals and having 16 tectonic lines after 52 games. Although playing very well when in PAOK but only until Deportivo, Perez really shone. In the 2014/15 season Perez scored 6 goals in 21 games, but the 2015/16 season was Perez’s prime time with 17 goals and 8 tectonic passes in La Liga. Remarkably, the Spanish striker also broke the record for consecutive successive scoring of legend Deportivo, Bebeto with seven consecutive matches.
Lucas Perez possesses dexterity left foot, high speed, good balance as well as swift mobility. He has made it very difficult for defenders in La Liga with very clever and equally unpleasant phases. In total he had 38 passes the last season – an impressive number.
In addition, the defensive counter-attack helped Perez promote strength in speed as well as run off the offside trap of opponents. He has scored goals against Barcelona, Sevilla, Valencia and Atletico Madrid last season. Therefore, he can completely become an effective solution for Arsenal in matches against strong opponents.
Not only that, last season the Spanish striker also created many opportunities to score for his teammates. He created 72 chances but only eight of them were converted into goals. It can be seen that Arsenal not only owns a skillful player but also a tectonic expert who
