Deportivo La Coruna await Arsenal response over £9m Lucas Perez bid

Deportivo La Coruna await Arsenal response over £9m Lucas Perez bid

He wanted to leave for China in January but had his money-spinning move blocked by Wenger, who said he needed him for the rest of the season before promising that he would increase the 28-year-old's playing time.

The Spaniard has described the club's handing over of his squad number to new signing Alexandre Lacazette as an "ugly gesture".

The International Business Times also reports that Turkish giants Fenerbache are among a host of other clubs across Europe that are looking to snap up Perez this summer, but it is understood that Deportivo are confident of striking a deal. The Spaniard clearly sees himself as a first-choice striker, and not many can blame him. However, Wenger preferred to use Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud to lead his side's attack, forcing the former La Liga man to settle for a place on the bench.

'I feel cheated. In February I was not allowed to leave for China with the promise that I would play more and after that I had even fewer opportunities.

I don't think Lucas would have been the most legendary Arsenal striker ever, but he could have done a job, and the fact that he couldn't even get enough minutes to disprove that notion is really too bad.

Perez took the vacant number nine shirt last summer following his arrival from Deportivo La Coruna but struggled to secure regular first-team appearances, though he did impress in the openings he managed to secure in the first-team.
