Lucas Perez’s agent has backtracked on claims the striker is looking to force through a move away from Arsenal and claimed he is keen to succeed in north London.
Agent Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle suggested on Monday that the 28-year-old was willing to leave the north London side ‘at any cost’ after a difficult start to life at the Emirates.
The former Deportivo La Coruna man only joined Arsenal in the summer in a £17.1million move but has made just 19 appearances in all competitions and seems far down the pecking order at Arsenal.
Lucas Perez’s agent has insisted the striker has no interest in leaving Arsenal
That led to Lovelle telling Italian outlet Calcio Mercato: ‘Look, the truth is that Lucas wants to leave at all costs and is not happy at Arsenal, he hasn’t settled and hasn’t had a chance to play and show what he can do.’
But speaking to Sportsmail, Lovelle insisted the forward was still keen to succeed with the Premier League giants.
