Published

on

Arsenal forward Lucas Pérez is increasingly worried over his lack of game time with the North London side after his £17m move from Spanish La Liga outfit Deportivo La Coruna last summer.

The 28-year old could surprisingly seal a transfer away from the Emirates Stadium after one season only if his current situation with the Gunners does not change. Pérez, who missed the 5-1 the mauling of Arsenal by German champions Bayern Munich in the 1st leg of their UEFA Champions League (UCL) round of 16 ties in Munich through injury, has been given just eight starts in all competitions by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger though he has hugely impressed whenever he features culminating in him netting five goals.

When the Spanish forward joined Arsenal in the summer, he was largely expected to fight with French striker Oliver Giroud for the sole starting berth up front, however, the previously mentioned Wenger opted to convert Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez to a central striker and him has been rewarded by the former Barcelona and Udinese man, who has scored 20 goals in all competitions.

As a result of this, Pérez met with Wenger earlier this season to discuss his lack of playing time in Arsenal this season according to popular news outlet Goal.com Failure to get the playing time he wants could force him to make an exit from the club when the summer transfer window opens.

The 67-year old Frenchman has come under a lot of heavy criticisms after his Arsenal side suffered a disappointing 5-1 loss to German champions Bayern Munich in what was the first leg of their UEFA Champions League (UCL) round of 16 clashes. The 3-time English Premier League

“No matter what happens I will manage for another season. Whether it’s here or somewhere else, that is for sure.

“If I said March or April it is because I didn’t know. I do not want to come back on that.

“I am used to the criticism. I think in life it’s important to do what you think is right and all the rest is judgment. I am in a public job and I have to accept that, but I have to behave with my values.” Wenger said on BBC Sports

The 3-time English Premier League (EPL) winner was reportedly so low after the match that Arsenal player and backroom staff feared he could walk away after the Bayern humiliation. His body language was further confirmed during the post-match press conference when he answered just three questions under three minutes before leaving the press centre.

For now, he has already been offered a two-year contract extension by the North London club but players, fans and the Arsenal board will have to wait on the former AS Monaco and Grampus Eight boss to decide his future around next month.
