Lucas Pérez has finally ended his nightmare spell with the Gunners.
The 28-year-old will join Deportivo La Coruna as he stated he was where he wanted to be after completing a loan move from Arsenal.
The 28-year-old has been looking for a way out throughout the whole summer. While it appeared that Wenger’s side is not willing to accept bids below 15 million pounds for his services, the club from north London finally agreed on a €4m loan deal with no option to buy included.
“I’m where I want to be,” Pérez is quoted as saying by Riazor.org.
“I have a right to decide what is going to happen with my future and what I want to do.
“Arsenal understood that and I’m grateful to them. They understood my situation and the fact that I wanted to return home.
“Arsenal defended their own interests, they initially didn’t want me to return to Deportivo.
“They have reached agreements with many clubs but I clearly told them that my intention was to join Depor and no other alternative.
“I don’t want to give a number but in the last three or four days I spoke to many sporting directors and coaches. But I reiterated that my wish was to return to Deportivo.”
