Sébastien Pérez (born 24 November 1973 in Saint-Chamond, Loire) is a French professional football player who started his career for AS Saint-Étienne as a central midfielder.

Pérez signed for Blackburn Rovers from SC Bastia in July 1998 by manager Roy Hodgson at the time, for a fee of £3 million. His stay in East Lancashire was somewhat short, and he only made five appearances for Blackburn. He did, however, manage to score twice for the club, against Chelsea in the league[1] and Lyon in the UEFA Cup.[2]

His career with Blackburn started well, but he suffered a serious injury, and upon return to the squad he struggled regaining his place back in the starting lineup. He was then loaned out and completed a move back to France, where he joined Marseille in June 1999. He was loaned out to Galatasaray for the 2001–02 season, then returned to Marseille until the end of the 2003–04 season, when he was released. He joined FC Istres. For the 2007–08 season, he joined l'US Endoume.

Sébastien Pérez is also a member of the France national beach soccer team.
