His agent was claimed to have suggested his future lies away from Arsenal linking him to a move to AC Milan.
Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle reportedly told Calciomercato: “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.”
Wenger, has revealed Lucas is seeking more minutes, and he acknowledge his goal scoring abilities when called upon to deliver for the Gunners
“Yes, he is pushing on the door but I have many strikers,” Wenger said.
“I have Giroud, Welbeck, Walcott, Alexis and Lucas.
“It is true that he deserves a go because he scores goals and is a good player.”
