Lucas Perez’s nightmare spell at Arsenal may soon be at an end after his agent confirmed Deportivo La Coruna want to re-sign him.
The striker’s switch to the Premier League 12 months ago has failed to live up to expectations, and his unhappiness over a lack of game time has led Perez to express a desire to leave.
The Spanish forward is wanted back by his former club and, speaking to BBC Sportabout his client, football agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle confirmed that the La Liga side had tabled a bid to bring him back to his homeland.
He said: “Arsenal know we want to go, that there are no opportunities here. Deportivo made an offer a week ago – it is a permanent deal and worth more than Nolito’s move to Sevilla.
“Of course [he was told he would play more]. Lucas signed for Arsenal and was the happiest person in the world and with all of his dreams to fulfil.
“Every time he played he did well, but after every time he got fewer and fewer opportunities.”
