FORMER Arsenal forward Lucas Perez has had his contract terminated by LaLiga side Deportivo Alaves.
The 32-year-old has spent the last two years at the Estadio Mendizorroza, where he has chipped in with 15 goals and nine assists in 62 appearances.
But the club have announced that the two parties have reached an agreement to terminate his deal.
A club statement read: “Deportivo Alaves and Lucas Perez have reached an agreement for the separation of the Galician player, who leaves the Paseo de Cervantes entity after two seasons.
“We thank Lucas for his commitment and involvement in achieving the goals set by the team and we wish him the best of luck in his future.
“Thank you and good luck, Lucas!”
Perez, who cost Arsenal £17million in 2016 before being flogged to West Ham for just £4m two years later, took to social media to thank the club for his time there.
In an Instagram post, he said: “It’s time to say goodbye to the family of Deportivo Alaves.

“After two seasons in which we have had good times and bad times I want to thank you.
“It has been a pleasure to be part of the history of this club. Thank you for making this possible.
“Thanks to the club, my team-mates, the coaching staff and the fans. I wish you all the best.”
Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo have now claimed that Perez could be set to return to former employers Rayo Vallecano.
Perez started off his professional career with Rayo in the 2009/10 season before linking up with Ukrainian side Karpaty Lviv.
And with the Red Sashes back in LaLiga after two years away, Perez could decide to continue his career in the top-flight.
