Lucas Perez wants to leave Arsenal “at all costs”

Lucas Perez’s agent has claimed that the Arsenal forward is unhappy at Arsenal and wants to leave the club as soon as possible according to reports in Italy.

The Spaniard only signed in the summer but despite impressing when he has on the pitch, has seen his playing time limited with just one start in the Premier League.

The quotes in CalcioMercato claim Rodrigo Fernandez Llovelle, Perez’s agent said: “The matter is that Lucas want to leave at all costs and is not happy at Arsenal.

“He hasn’t settled and hasn’t had the chance to play and show what he can do.

“No matter who will be the coach, we want to go. The player must have an opportunity to play.”

Perez grabbed another goal last night and it is easy to see why he would be frustrated. He has done all he can to show he deserves more playing time but Arsene Wenger clearly does not agree.

It may be an effort to force the manager into playing him more or he may genuinely want to leave. It will be interesting to see how this plays out as the season goes on.
