Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is ready to consider staying at the Emirates beyond the current season, according to his official representative, despite reports linking him with a summer exit.

The Spanish forward had played mere 265 minutes of Premier League football during his debut season in North London and he eventually decided to return to Deportivo La Coruna on loan last summer.

After scoring 8 goals in 35 La Liga outings, the 29-year-old has returned to Arsenal, but everything suggests he will again be moving clubs this summer.

It seems that Spanish striker Lucas Perez could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium on a permanent basis this summer. Perez spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna, who suffered relegation to the Spanish Segunda.

In truth, Perez failed to impress at the club where he first made his name. He has little chance of staying with the north London club, especially with the exit of veteran Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

In-demand elsewhere

According to his agent Rodrigo Fernandez, Italian club Lazio wants to sign Perez this summer. Fernandez is reported to have said: “Lazio asked for him last year, but nothing came of it.

According to Marca via talkSPORT, Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is a target for Levante, after his proposed return to Deportivo La Coruna broke down. The 28-year-old looked set to re-join the club who Arsenal signed him from 12 months ago, but now he might be joining another Spanish La Liga side.

Levante are believed to have put their name in the hat to sign Lucas, who last season scored and created 12 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions. He made few starts for Arsenal but proved prolific in the low number of minutes afforded by manager Arsene Wenger. However, the Gunners boss has dug his heels in when it comes to letting him leave this summer.

Alexandre Lacazette led the line in attack from the kick-off whereas it was Olivier Giroud who got introduced in the second term with Lucas Perez failing to make it to the bench even.

Arsenal are looking to offload a number of their players and one of those is supposedly Spanish striker Lucas Perez. The 28-year-old only joined the Gunners from Deportivo La Coruna last summer for a fee of around £17million.

However, he struggled for game time with the club from north London and is now looking to move on in search of regular game time elsewhere.  According to TalkSport, a number of clubs are trailing the forward this summer.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is waiting to see if Deportivo’s bid to re-sign him will be accepted by the Gunners this summer. The Spanish attacker has been angling for an exit after a disappointing debut season at the Emirates Stadium and could be set for a return to Depor.

Perez’s agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle has been critical of Arsenal, saying the Gunners were guilty of lying and mistreating the 28-year-old, while admitting frustration with the club stalling on Deportivo’s bid. “We have talked to everyone. Arsenal know we want to go, that there are no opportunities here, and within a year there is a World Cup,” said Lovelle.

According to the Metro and reports from Spain, the agent of Arsenal striker Lucas Perez has flown into London to discuss the striker’s future in north London.

The striker struggled for first team football last season after a £17million move from Deportivo La Coruna last summer. He has also suffered the indignity of losing his number nine shirt to summer signing Alexandre Lacazette without his knowledge.

A-bit part player

It is not a major surprise that Lucas Perez struggled for game time at Arsenal last season. His signing felt like a stopgap. The Spaniard was no better than the strikers who were already at the club and he was always going to find it difficult to play many minutes in the starting eleven.

Arsenal forward Lucas Perez has spoken out about his desire to leave in the summer, citing mistreatment and broken promises from manager Arsene Wenger since his arrival in 2016. According to Spanish wesbite La Voz de Galicia via Sky Sports, the Spaniard was talking to Arsenal’s transfer negotiator Dick Law and said he wants an exit as soon as possible.

“I want to leave, to play and be happy. Last year I barely had any opportunities and when I had them I took advantage of them. And this season is clearly going to be more of the same. I want to fight to go to the national team. I want to play football, but for that I have to leave. And I think that the best place for me is at home, with Depor.
