In relation to the previously published story about Lucas Perez wanting to leave Arsenal, we’ve been made aware that the striker’s agent has denied ever speaking to the CalcioMercato website.
Despite them quoting him extensively, he insists he didn’t grant them that interview, so I guess we have to take him at his word.
Lucas Perez's agent says he hasn't spoken to CalcioMercato about his client wanting to leave Arsenal. Quotes have been picked up elsewhere.

As an apology, here’s a puppy.
