Perez primed to show he’s a big Gun

LUCAS PEREZ says he is ready to show Arsenal fans why Arsene Wenger signed him, and tipped the manager so extend his Gunners stay.

The Spanish striker (pictured), currently sidelined with a thigh problem, has barely featured in the Premier League but has a Champions League hat-trick to his name and averages a goal every 119 minutes on the pitch during his first season at the Emirates Stadium. ‘I had the bad luck to get injured in the first few months and that affected me, but I feel very capable of showing why they signed me,’ Perez said.

‘I am trying to take the chances they give until they have 100 per cent confidence in me. The manager is happy that I am in the squad because whenever I play I have done well.

‘The relationship I have with Wenger is good and I think he will continue.’
