Arsenal’s Lucas Perez has launched a stinging verbal attack against the club and Arsene Wenger saying he has not be treated fairly.

The actual reason he felt cheated was that Spaniard was not happy his shirt number (9) was given to Alexandre Lacazette without telling him.

The striker said that was “the last straw” in a long line of disrespect shown to him including failed promises to get more playing time.

Local Spanish newspaper La Voz De Galicia report that Perez was given the number 28 shirt following the arrival of club record signing Alexandre Lacazette.

“They [Arsenal] are not being fair with me. The act of taking away my [shirt] number without telling me anything to give to a teammate, that was the last straw for me,” Perez was quoted as saying.

“It is unfortunate. And I can’t go on this way. I have given them everything, but they haven’t responded in kind. And I can’t take it anymore.”

He also said Arsenal blocked a move to China in February, and that a promise of more playing time which never materialised.

“Last year I barely had any opportunities and when I had them I took advantage of them. And this season it is clear that it is going to be more of the same. I want to fight for the chance to play on the national team. I want to play football. But to do that I have to leave. And I think where I will be better off is in my home, with Depor,” he said.

“I feel like I was tricked. In February I was not allowed to leave for China but it was promised that I would be playing more and then I had even fewer opportunities. But the shirt number was an ugly gesture.”

“The least they could have done was to let me know before [it was made public] even if they were going to take it away anyway. It is something the club was not involved in. On the trip, Lacazette asked the manager and he agreed to it [the number change]. Afterward, they communicated it to us.”

Perez was brought in from Deportivo La Coruna last summer, started nine games but scored seven goals and provided five assists, including a Champions League hat trick at Basel.
