Arsenal striker Lucas Perez has revealed his delight a playing for the Gunners and has described the club as a “marvel”.
The striker moved to north London from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer and has scored two goals so far in six appearances in all competitions so far this season..
Perez is currently on the comeback trail after picking up an ankle injury but his enthusiasm for his new club has not dimmed during his time on the sidelines.
“The Arsenal surprises me every day because of the treatment you get, the desire to have the player as comfortable and at ease possible,” he told Marca.
“You just have to dedicate yourself to training. It’s a marvel of club.”
The 28-year-old has also praised manager Arsene Wenger who he feels is already helping to improve his game.

“He works with you very closely. He helps you to be a better footballer, and, although he looks quite serious, he’s a great person and a great coach,” he added.
“People respect and love him a lot.”
Perez has recently revealed he is hoping to be back in contention sooner than expected and explained why he chose to return to former club Deportivo to help with his recuperation.
He added: “We decided it was best, I wanted to be at home and above was rushing options to recover as soon as possible.”
Arsenal will certainly be hoping Perez can be available for selection soon particularly with concerns over Alexis Sanchez’s fitness and tough fixtures to come in November.
