Arsenal striker Lucas Perez wants a move away from the club this summer and would welcome a return to Deportivo La Coruna.

The 28-year-old has featured only eleven times in the Premier League, scoring once, while his opportunities in the Champions League have also been scarce.

"This season has been difficult because I think I've deserved to play more," Perez told La Voz de Galicia.

"I may not have done as well as others, but if they'd have given me more minutes I'd have produced better numbers: more goals and more assists.

"I've spoken to the coach and he admits as much, but he has own ideas and I respect that. I'd like more opportunities because I think I deserve them, but I'll have to accept what comes my way.

"I would like to prove that I've got the quality to win things with Arsenal, but if the moment comes when I can't do that anymore, or if they decide to transfer me, there is always the opportunity to go back to Deportivo.

"I know there are other clubs who want to sign me and my intention is to play in the Champions League. But in the summer we will see if Depor is still an option.

"People talk about you without knowing you, and that hurts sometimes I've only kissed the badge at one club and that was Depor's. I never lied or did anything behind their back.

"They could have sold me to other clubs where I would have earned more, but for a smaller transfer fee, and I didn't accept the moves because it was my home. I came [to Arsenal] to try and progress. I think anyone would do what I have done."
