Lucas Perez’s agent has played down speculation the forward is keen to leave Arsenal this summer and insists he had not held talks over a move away.
Recent reports have claimed the 28-year-old could return to former side Deportivo at the end of the season after struggling for game time at the Emirates.
Perez has made just two Premier League starts this season and has frequently been overlooked by Arsene Wenger despite impressing when he had been handed a rare chance in the first team.
The forward is reportedly keen for regular football as he believes he can break into the Spain squad for World Cup 2018 but his agent says a move is not on the agenda currently.
“It’s not true and we haven’t been talking with anyone,” Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle told Goal.
“Lucas has three years left on his contract with Arsenal.

“In the summer when the season is finished we can talk but right now we are only thinking about Arsenal.”
If he does stay at Arsenal it’s difficult to see Perez playing regularly, particularly if Wenger and Sanchez stay at the club, with Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck also options up front.
Perez has also been linked with a move to West Ham and it would be huge shame to see him leave the Gunners after just one season, although few fans would surely begrudge him a move seeing as he has featured so rarely this season.
