Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has given the green signal to sell their striker Lucas Perez, the English football club announced on its official website on Wednesday. During a press conference ahead of their English Premier League clash against Stoke City on August 19, the French coach said there was a possibility that the 28-year-old Spaniard could leave before the closure of the summer transfer window on August 31, reports Efe.
“I opened the door for him because I have many strikers. If he finds a good opportunity, I will help him,” Wenger reiterated.
Lucas joined Arsenal from Deportivo de La Coruña in 2016 for 18.7 million euros ($21.9 million).
However, the Spanish striker was not included in Wenger’s plans and suffered recurring injuries, so he appeared only in 21 matches, including 11 EPL games.
