Lucas Perez: I'm where I want to be

Lucas Perez has rejoiced in his return to Deportivo La Coruna stating ‘I’m where I want to be’ after completing a loan move from Arsenal.

The 28-year-old has returned to the Galician club after one-year in North London after the club’s agreed a €4m loan deal with no option to buy included.

“I'm where I want to be,” Perez 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.”
