Arsenal transfer news: Gunners striker open to return to Spain
Lucas Perez has said that he would be open to a return to Deportivo, should he leave Arsenal this summer.
He also believes that he has deserved more opportunities for Arsenal.
Perez told La Vox de Galicia: “This season has been difficult because I think I’ve deserved to play more.
“I may not have done as well as others, but if they’d have given me more minutes I’d have produced better numbers: more goals and more assists.
“I’ve spoken to the coach and he admits as much, but he has own ideas and I respect that. I’d like more opportunities because I think I deserve them, but I’ll have to accept what comes my way.”
Lucas has just one Premier League goal in 11 appearances – most of them have been as a substitute though.
He has scored six in 10 in the cups and Champions League though, including a hat-trick away to Basel.
He added: “I would like to prove that I’ve got the quality to win things with Arsenal.
“But if the moment comes when I can’t do that any more, or if they decide to transfer me, there is always the opportunity to go back to Depor.
“I know there are other clubs who want to sign me and my intention is to play in the Champions League. But in the summer we will see if Depor is still an option.”
