According to reports in Spain, Ayoze Perez agent is now in talks with Valencia – and the NUFC forward has already told friends he’d be ‘delighted’ to join the La Liga side this summer.
This comes from Cope Radio this afternoon, who report that Valencia have now contacted Perez’s agent to discuss a potential deal.
Perez has talked up a potential return to Spain on more than one occasion over the past few months, and it sounds like this is a move he’s very keen on – especially now they’re set to play in next season’s Champions League after finishing 4th in La Liga.
The story states that Perez is now aware of Valencia’s interest and has informed friends that he’d be ‘delighted with the possibility’ of joining them this summer:
Not only have they been competing in Spain in recent years, being the next best side behind Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid last season, they also reached the semi-finals of the Europa League just last month.
Time will tell if there’s substance to this link, or if they’d be willing to meet our asking price if their interest is genuine.
