Lucas Perez has rejoined Deportivo La Coruna from Arsenal on a season-long loan deal.
The striker returns to his hometown club a year - and just nine starts - after joining the Gunners in a £17m deal.
Perez scored in every competition for Arsenal last season, including a Champions League hat-trick against Basel, but failed to establish himself as a first-team regular.
The 28-year-old was a deadline-day target for Everton but was always in favour of a move back to Depor, where he scored 18 Primera Liga goals in 2015/16.
A statement from Arsenal wished Perez well but did not say whether Depor have an option to make the move permanent next summer.
