Lucas Perez Wants Out Of Arsenal, For A Very Petty Reason

Lucas Perez Wants Out Of Arsenal, For A Very Petty Reason
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Lucas Perez hasn't exactly set the world alight at Arsenal. He scored a single Premier League goal last season in 11 appearances, although he did manage three in the League Cup and the Champions League.

It's an underwhelming return for Arsenal, who parted with more than £17 million to sign Perez from Deportivo a year ago. Things are going south quickly for Perez at the Emirates, and in spite of the persistent rumours that Olivier Giroud wants to leave the club, it appears that Perez will be on his way out, too.

He is disgusted that new signing Alexandre Lacazette has been handed his shirt number, and Arsenal apparently didn't have the good grace to inform Perez beforehand.

Perez has communicated his disgust in trademark fashion, by speaking to the Spanish press.

Arseblog have translated the quotes, as Perez reveals he wants to return to Depor, having been denied a move to China:

They [Arsenal] are not behaving well with me. The thing of taking the shirt number without telling me to give it to a companion, it seems to me the last straw.

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.

But the shirt number is an ugly gesture. On the trip, Lacazette asked the boss and he accepted. Afterwards, he told me.

The full transcript is on Arseblog.
